YouSpeak: Who Is Your Favorite Alum?

Some are famous, some are cherished


As Alumni Weekend was drawing thousands of grads back to campus, BU Today asked students to name their favorite alum. Some, unsurprisingly, chose famous actors, some picked people who made the world a better place, and some named the people they love most.

What about you? Tell us who your favorite alum is in the Comments section below.

    Without a doubt, Howard Stern. Tremendously under recognized by BU.

    Bill O’Reilly is one of the top bu alum. You may disagree with his politics but he does present a variety of views on different subjects. He has written many new York times best selling books. Many don’t know about his genuine generosity. He has helped out a number of foundations such as” it happened to alexa (bu student that was raped ) and wounded warrior to name a few.he has donated to bu as well.
