I met and befriended some pretty amazing people during my time as a BU student; individuals who I knew would be wildly successful in their chosen professions. Some of these friends are now doctors, lawyers, environmentalists, filmmakers and more.

So, it is no surprise to me that three of BU’s most successful female graduates were recently ranked in the top 10 of Hollywood Reporter’s 2011 Women in Entertainment Power 100 list. Find out more about these impressive women who have risen to the top of the entertainment industry by checking out the full BU Today story here.

IMG_2235John Gursky joined the Admissions team on September 1, and today he toured the College of Communication’s (COM) BUTV10 film studios to learn more about the curriculum for COM students. He does a pretty great impression of a news anchor, doesn’t he? is Boston University’s student-produced and managed television station. Established in 2005, it’s a University-wide resource that presents the work of students, faculty and alumni via campus channel 10, live streaming video and on-demand web content. If you’re thinking about applying to COM, you should know it’s just one of the cool resources offered to students.

On October 17, John will begin his international travel to spread the word about all of BU’s exciting academic opportunities in nine undergraduate colleges and schools. There’s a lot to learn before then! Good luck John.
