The Inside Scoop by our Local Expert

Boston University has been ahead of its time since its inception. The third president of Boston University claimed Boston University was “in the heart of the city, in the service of the city,” and Boston University has remained true to this depiction ever since. Boston University is proud of its past and excited about its future. Boston University boasts such honorable alumni as the first woman to earn a Ph.D., the first Native American to earn a doctorate in medicine and the first black psychiatrist in the nation. And most notably, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is counted among the most distinguished alumni of Boston University. Today Boston University has the reputation as a leader in higher education, a premier institution of both research and teaching. Two main campuses are located in downtown Boston, but the university provides educational opportunities that span the world. Centrally located in beautiful Boston, Massachusetts, Boston University encompasses 133 acres and provides countless cultural and recreational opportunities. The Boston Symphony Orchestra, Fenway Park Tours, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Arnold Arboretum are just a few of the experiences easily accessible from the Boston University campus. And with public transportation readily available, students and visitors alike are just a short ride away from world-class cultural and sporting events.
