Thanks for participating in our World Cup challenge! We scored 306 brackets, and chose the top 14 winners to receive some awesome prizes. Since half of you made your predictions after the tournament started, we split the brackets into two groups, depending on when you completed them. So don’t fret if you picked Spain during session one of orientation. The following winners will be receiving 2 tickets on a Boston Duck Tour exclusively for BU students, BU apparel, and a movie ticket. Congratulations!

Well Terriers, just like that another academic year has come to a close at Boston University. As you all move into your summer plans, we wanted to say thank you for another incredible year here at Student Activities. This year, student organizations put on a grand total of 296 events, incorporating everything from performance to business, and everything in between. Our student organizations put on 94 philanthropic, giving back to the Boston community, as well as the global community, and helped to make an impact on the world. This year, 103 different meals and banquets were put on by student organizations, celebrating accomplishments, culture, and a love a food. We also saw 175 different opportunities for students to engage athletically on campus this year, again showing the passion and involvement that so many Boston University students possess.
This has been an incredible year for collaborative programing, new organizations, and amazing events. Make sure that your student organization registers for next year by May 18, and keep on doing what you love. Have a safe and happy summer Terriers!
