  1. I really wish BU would be more transparent to all the students asking if they should attend BU on campus for the spring. Almost all Classes that said “In person” were changed to remote as soon as tuition was paid. RA’s were not guided and did Nothing. Kids were isolated and alone. Look at all other colleges. There is a balance there. Low covid numbers and kids are not very sick. But still Able to enjoy some campus life. BU lured the kids in saying that they will have a social Experience. There was none ! Not even in person classes. With charging full tuition. If this is the way it is run, fine but be honest!!!

    1. Please don’t be so absolute with your comments. My daughter had a social experience while living on campus. It was different from other years but she was extremely happy to be on campus. She had one in-class class, one she went to every third week, and one completely remote and her internship which had to be remote. Her friends classes were a combination as well.

      The point is it all depends on the year, the college, the student. I feel for those that it wasn’t what they expected and for them it didn’t work. But the University is doing its best to meet the needs of a high majority of students.

      We all have to make adjustments during this time. There were a lot more colleges and universities in this country either shutting down totally from the beginning or having kids come back and then after an outbreak of Covid, shutting down and sending students home. Northing is perfect and we should try to work together as a BU community.
