"I chose BU Wheelock because I really loved the idea of having a built-in community within the larger university. We have the incredible opportunity to create strong connections within our classes that we can take with us outside the classroom and into our lives. I also chose Wheelock because you are able to build these same close relationships with faculty and staff." – Renata Feinstein
