Joey Buzzell (CAS'19): "There were a lot of things that drew me to BU: its location in the heart of Boston, the population, the district, the T running through campus (which is a huge factor for me), the academics, student graduation rates, success rates after graduation, and so on. It’s a very well-known school. When thinking of applying to upper-level grad schools, a person from BU will get more recognition than someone who comes from a school no one’s ever heard about."
This National Park consists of 34 small islands just off shore in Boston Harbor. The most popular, George's Island, is home to Fort Warren, a Civil War Landmark that housed Confederate prisoners. Visitors to the 12 islands open for exploration can camp, kayak, tour lighthouses, ride harbor ferries, hike and swim.
Make Way for Ducklings Artist: Nancy Schön Location: Boston Public Garden, near Beacon St. and Charles St. Year: 1987 Medium: Bronze Funders: Friends of the Public Garden Description: A favorite Boston landmark, this sculpture by Nancy Schön was created in 1987 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Public Garden. It pays tribute to Robert McCloskey’s popular children book, written in 1941, about a family of ducks who make their home here. Photo by Kalman Zabarsky
Angora Cafe- Located right next to UBurger and T. Anthony's and across from West Campus, Angora Cafe serves up a number of paninis, flat breads, roll-ups, and salads, but ask any BU student and they'll tell you that the one thing you HAVE to get at Angora is- frozen yogurt. Angora's froyo is a little different from the other places on campus because they mix in your toppings and have a more soft-serve ice cream like flavor and consistency.
