From BU Emergency Management


Today, April 25, Boston University’s Emergency Management Department will conduct an “active shooter” emergency preparedness exercise in Medical School Library, located in the Instructional Building, beginning at 11:50 a.m. to test the University’s Active Shooter emergency response plan. BU conducts exercises like these regularly to ensure readiness to act in the case of a real life situation. This exercise includes a limited number of staff and volunteers, who already have been identified. In addition, the BUMC Department of Public Safety, Boston University Police, Boston Police and Boston EMS will participate in this exercise.



Thank you.

A Cappella Rocks: Dear Abbeys and Barbershop Sweethearts

BU vocal groups perform pop favorites


Finals are here, and what better way to de-stress than with a medley of pop songs performed by some of Boston University’s best a cappella groups? A cappella, which means “in the manner of the chapel,” is a term first used to describe church music composed for unaccompanied voices, and now refers to any vocal music performed without instruments.

BU Today showcases a different group each day this week. All performances were taped at the Castle.

In our final installment, watch performances by the Dear Abbeys and the Barbershop Sweethearts.
