Favorite Part About BU: “A tie between the people and the independence. BU pushes a lot of growth, and there’s nobody really holding your hand along the way, which is cool because that’s what I wanted college to be like. I’m also far away from home. I’m from Chicago, South Side, so for me to be out here in a different region, different side of the country, is pretty cool to develop that independent feeling. The people here are really awesome. It’s a thought-provoking campus, and there’s plenty of opportunities for exposure to anything you want really.”
