Studying in the Dean of Students Lounge and Dean Elmore comes out and says, “Now, I don’t want to distract any of you from your studying, but if you need to take a break I just got a load of Red Sox tickets for tonight, tomorrow, and Wednesday night’s games. If you’re interested, come to my office and help yourselves.”
I love this school.
I’m having trouble finding my own words, but this pretty much sums it up. Binland was so warm and welcoming. She was easily one of the nicest people I met at BU and I feel blessed to have known her. I am heartbroken that she won’t be able to complete the journey with us.
This semester. I honestly don’t even know where to start. The last semester of college is understandably supposed to be bittersweet, but the last couple of months have just seemed so ridiculous for many reasons—personal and otherwise. Today’s news just made it seem even more bitter.
From remembering the events of last May to just two weeks ago, it just seems so tragic that beautiful spring days can so easily be deeply saddened by horrible events.
It seems fitting that the wind picked up, the sky grayed, and a light rain began to fall on Comm Ave just as I read the news that one of those lost in yesterday’s bombings was a Boston University student. It wasn’t an angry, fierce downfall like are so common here, but a sad, slow drizzle. Like the city crying for our loss.
black-beatrice asked: Hi! I'm considering matriculating to Boston University next year and I had a few questions. What are the science (biology) facilities like? Is there a large gay population (if you'd even know something like that)? Is there anything fun to do (I live in a small town and I'm DYING!)? What are the dorms like? The professors? I'm sorry for all the questions.
Hi! I’m in the School of Management and I’ve avoided science courses at all costs throughout college, so I’m not a good person to ask about bio. The science building is pretty cool though, I’ve had a couple classes in there. Lots of good spots for naps and that’s really the most important thing, isn’t it? As far as the gay population, yes. Basically, all girls at BU are forced to come to terms with the fact that all the guys here are either taken or gay (or both). There are a million fun things to do, from shows to sporting events to restaurants and bars. Being in the city is a thousand times better than the suburbs, I promise. The dorms are fine, on campus dining is awesome. Most of my professors have been great, especially in SMG. I know the sciences are really tough, but there is some excellent faculty there as well. Hope this helps! (Also, come to BU. Just do it. It’s great.)
I hate being the sniffly one in the library. My apologies, Pardee 4th floor.
my cs professor just made a reference to fmylife.com. what is this, 2009?
I wonder if I’ll ever be able to walk past Myles without getting this overwhelming feeling of nostalgia.
