Boston University Graduate Reviews

15 reviews
I absolutely love Boston University! I am actually an online student who lives in Seattle, Washington but recently had the chance to visit this Boston University in person this past February! The architecture is beautiful and the location is as well. I would have been attending the School of Social Work which is a separate campus and is right next to a beautiful body of water. Since I do not attend BU in person, I would love to say that my online professors have been more than helpful; they have personally inspired me as well as motivated me. My professors go above and beyond for me, this is why I will always choose Boston University and recommend this school to everyone!

BU is an excellent school that truly lives up to its name. As one of the leading schools in the Boston area, that has consistently produced breakthroughs in research and technology, students have the opportunity to learn a great deal and have multiple opportunities to be apart of these discoveries.
Boston University fosters academic excellence and then goes a step beyond by encouraging students to then use their strong academic foundation to pursue new discoveries and advancements.
BU's faculty and advisers encourage students to think outside the box and be daring to make research and technological discoveries. It has truly been an amazing experience that I am so blessed to have experienced and been apart of.
The faculty alone is why I gave the school 5 stars. I am attending the College of Fine Arts. Most of the faculty here are members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and are known for their teaching ability. A lot of alumni from here go on to play with the best orchestras all around the world. The diversity in this school is incredible! People from all around the world go to school here.
