Welcome, CAS Class of 2024

Dear future CAS students,

Congratulations and welcome to the College of Arts & Sciences at BU! We hope you all take a moment to recognize and celebrate this wonderful achievement. Many of you are experiencing unprecedented disruptions to your senior year of high school, just as we are experiencing a sudden end to in-person classes and on-campus programming at BU this spring. We hope you hang in there, and look forward to meeting you soon.

Ordinarily, we would be welcoming you all to campus for an Open House in April. Due to the changed circumstances, however, we will be giving you a chance to experience what CAS has to offer from the comfort of your home! Below you will find info about our series of virtual webinars and Q&A sessions featuring current students. During these webinars, you’ll learn what it is like to be a student in the College of Arts & Sciences and about the wonderful academic programs available to you here.

There’s no better way to get a feel for what it is like to be student here than by hearing directly from our current students! We hope you take the time to learn all about the CAS Advantage and the opportunities that await you.

—Stan Sclaroff, Dean of Arts & Sciences
