See you this fall
By Stacey Milton
It feels like we were just out on the road meeting with newly admitted Terriers, and yet our travels to meet with prospective BU applicants have begun yet again.
My colleagues are all across the country—and world—visiting students at high schools and holding special admissions events. Just last week, I was meeting with juniors and seniors in Delaware and Chester County, Pennsylvania. I was pleasantly surprised to see great numbers everywhere I went. It was a fun four days, even in spite of some wicked rain and flooding in Pottstown, PA. I’m thrilled that so many students are taking the time to learn more about BU, and I can’t wait to meet even more over the next two months.
This beautiful fall weekend in Boston was also quite BU-oriented. Boston University welcomed thousands of alumni back to campus for our annual Reunion Weekend. Kicking off the celebration on Saturday night was an impressive display of talent – from student choirs to the Boston Pops. I saw lots of familiar faces as different student groups were highlighted; our admissions volunteers really ARE involved in everything. I was super proud to see one our Admissions Ambassadors, Alison Weltman, representing the Community Service Center and announcing a 1 million hour student service pledge over the next five years.
Tomorrow, it’s back to eastern PA, my Admissions home-away-from-home (and for me, it really is home!). I’m looking forward to meeting many interesting students thinking about BU.
And, if you happen to be in Tampa, FL; Warwick, RI; Long Island, NY; Troy, MI; or Portland, OR – we hope to see you Monday night at our BU Admissions event!
