North Faces, Jansport, or girls carry around bags like Longchamp.

For prospective freshmen reading this and wondering what they should wear, be casual and wear layers just in case—-and check the weather before you come!
Anonymous asked: How's Greek life at BU? ARE there any 'stereotypical ' fraternities and sororities? Just wondering, which sorority /fraternity is your 'favorite '.
I’ve posted about Greek life here. And yes, you can find those “stereotypical” frats and sororities, I’m sure.
I don’t have a favorite though!
Anonymous asked: Hey there! I just wanted to respond to the anon inquiring about the WISE@Warren program. I lived on the floor last year and I really enjoyed it! You get to meet so many wonderful young women who love learning! There's also peer mentors on the floor that you can go to if you'd like help in some of your classes. Currently, I live in the WISE-UP brownstone which is beautiful! If you'd like to live here as well, you'd have a good chance to if you were at WISE@Warren. Good luck with everything :)
Posting for WISE@Warren!
Anonymous asked: I'm an incoming freshmen for the fall of 2014, and I was wondering which dorms I should choose if I want a fun, party atmosphere?
I think your best bet is Warren! :) (It’s the least walking for a CAS student, and pretty much in the middle of campus.)
Anonymous asked: Not sure if this is what the person meant, bu the west campus dorms had a few inter dorm contests!! We decorated the floor lobby for Halloween/christmas and the winners got pizza parties!
dontlettodaygotowaste asked: How'd their international relations program?
I’ve heard that it’s difficult…But it is a really good program!
Anonymous asked: hi! aside from warren and west, which residencies have high numbers of freshmen living in them?
Towers—-and I think that’s it!
Anonymous asked: is there any shuttle or bus available for west campus students going to smg?
Yes! The BU Shuttle, which has an app.
fflorean asked: I'm choosing between BU and BC and although BU gave me more money, it lacks the campus feel I'm looking for. Do you think there's still a strong sense of community? Also, what dorm allows singles that still have a big party scene and is close to classes?
I get that BU may not be “campusy” in a typical college campus way, but I love the campus anyway! This stretch of campus is ALL BU…All these buildings are associated with BU, instead of being spread out.
People here take pride in going here—-school spirit may not be the biggest thing here, but if that’s what you’re looking for, then be true to you. ;)
Anonymous asked: What exactly is FYSOP?
First Year Student Outreach Program! DO IT!
So first years and transfers can sign up to move in a week early and volunteer for any of the eleven issue areas: animals, children, disabilities, hunger, homelessness and housing, elders, environment, gender focus, public health awareness, human rights, and urban engagement.
It’s a lot of fun and you get to know Boston & BU a little bit better.
I would really recommend it! I still keep in touch with my FYSOP friends!
Anonymous asked: So superficial but are the guys cute at bu? Or mit
Haha, what would you do if I said “no, sorry…”
But I’ve met some pretty cute BU guys! :)
MIT I’m not sure about.
amplivagant asked: Hi! I will be a freshman at BU this fall. I am interested in biological anthropology as my major.. is there anything you can tell me about it? do you know anyone who has taken that track in anthro?
No, sorry, I’ve only known people who have taken the intro class.
But here is the department’s phone number and email:
Sending an introductory email or calling to ask questions is your best bet to find out more!
Anonymous asked: Hi! I was wondering if you know anything about WISE@Warren/if anyone you know had any experience with it. I'm going to be in SAR (so yeah science related), but I'm not sure if it would be better to be in WISE or to be in my major related specialty residence. I've read about it on BU's website, but I haven't heard any personal experience about WISE. Thank you!!
I don’t have any personal experience, but I did look into it before I applied to BU. I would recommend choosing to apply to the WISE program for your freshman year—-then go for specialty housing in later years.
