Got Talent? We Know You Do, BU

Winner gets a $300 gift card


As the general manager of BU Central, Brandon Epstein knows talent, and he knows BU’s got plenty of it.

“Thereare a ton of talented people here,” says Epstein (SMG’09), noting theopen-mics, the student bands, the dancers, and the amateur comedianswho’ve graced his stage. “Definitely, I’d say we have the cream of thecrop.”

But even Epstein might be surprised at how many hiddenskills lie beneath Boston University’s serious academic façade —students who can juggle fire, RAs who unicycle, and a veritable chorusof singing professors.
