A Day in the Life of a Residential Honors Student

What is your day like as a High School Honors student at Boston University? That depends on your courses. When choosing your courses, take note of what days and times they meet. That is your class schedule for the six weeks of the program.

Meals are offered in the Marciano Commons dining room, which offers a large assortment of cuisines for all tastes, including vegetarian and vegan options. The dining staff can also help if you have food allergies or other dietary restrictions.

While at Boston University, you share dorm life and social activities with students from the Research Internship in Science & Engineering (RISE) program. To help you get to know everyone, the BU campus, and Boston, we plan a variety of fun group events during the first week. After that, each weekend has a planned activity that everyone participates in along with some optional activities during the week. Your weeknights are free for homework, impromptu activities, and time with friends until curfew. Take a look at our Schedule of Social Events to see the types of exciting activities we plan.

You will also have plenty of free time to enjoy the BU campus and all that Boston has to offer. You can purchase a short-term membership to Boston University’s Fitness & Recreation Center, study at one of BU’s 22 libraries, or relax on the BU "beach."
