"Boston University and BU Wheelock in particular are located near some of the coolest places in Boston. There are just so many places and historical landmarks surrounding campus that are interesting to explore.

I also chose BU Wheelock because I could get my MAT degree as a Noyce Scholar and study science education with a social justice perspective. I most enjoyed being part of the small group of students with whom I took classes. We are very supportive of one another. The small size of our classes also allows us to share our ideas in a very supportive and safe space."
