On August 16, Boston University launched BURST, its newest social media channel.

The Facebook page gathers stories and videos from all University publications, including BU Today, BU Research, and Bostonia, taking readers inside the labs, classrooms, and studios on campus.

Highlighting research and expert commentary, BURST draws stories from across the BU network, illustrating what faculty, undergrads, and alumni have been working on in many different disciplines, from public health, physics, biology, and the environment to engineering, education, climate change, and the humanities.
