Why Boston?

Once you’re on BU’s campus, all the attractions of the city are just a short trip away—whether on foot or by public transportation. With almost 400 years of history, Boston’s rich past remains visible in a metropolis that continues to grow and thrive. You’ll find dozens of museums, extensive parks, amazing live music, and bountiful theater and movie options—as well as an array of outdoor activities in a region that boasts easy access to mountains, beaches, and historic towns. Plus, the BU campus is a stone’s throw from Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox—2013 World Series Champions. If you like sports, culture, and outdoor activities, this is your town.
