Boston University is located along a strip of well-known schools. It stands apart from the more academically-oriented as the place to party in Boston. Some may have been offended by the opening scene of “The Social Network” when Mark Zuckerberg’s character tells his girlfriend “you don’t have to study – you go to BU,” but this line really speaks more about his flaws than those of the school: He is a boring, stuck-up, douchebag.
Despite what he said, BU is actually recognized for its academics, but the difference between this university and those located nearby is the students’ ability to strike a good balance between work and fun. This is the key to success, knowing when to work hard and play hard. If you can do this then you are already half way there.
We also can’t forget the noticeably more attractive campus of BU than the surrounding universities. There’s no shortage of hot girls, and the 2012 Miss USA, Olivia Culpo, was even enrolled prior to winning her title.
