The COM Ambassador program is available to current and prospective COM freshmen. We are here to answer questions and help you learn all the great things that BU, COM and Boston have to offer.

Be bold. Be creative. Be COM. @BU

Sara: Pop Culture Superlatives

I will be the first to admit I have a problem. In regards to my very specific pop culture loves of course. I can’t help but think about when my favorite people are releasing new books/albums/ movies and obviously it’s my duty to keep you in the loop. Here’s what’s on my mind as we […]

Hannah C: Halloween on Campus

When I was younger, I always thought Halloween deserved the appreciation of a national holiday; I wanted to maximize candy collections by starting to ring doorbells at 7am with a day off from school.  This October 31 is a Friday, and although classes aren’t canceled on Halloween, there are still plenty of ways to get […]

Kerri: Internships & Networking

It’s that time of the semester where you are constantly being notified of the different Career Expos and Networking Events going on. From round table discussions to informational tables, companies are seeking out the most qualified students to fill their internship and job positions. This past week the Center for Career Development hosted the Fall […]

Amy: Heading to the Head of the Charles?

This weekend, Boston was host to one of my favorite events, the Head Of The Charles Regatta. It may not have the intensity and fame of the Boston Marathon, but I think it has a similar effect for many people. For two days, Bostonians and visitors from all over gather to watch the races, stroll […]

Stacy: My Weekend With My Parents

Hey everyone! I hope everyone survived midterms and is loving this beautiful fall season! Last weekend my parents visited Boston so I thought it would be helpful to blog about what we did, which will hopefully be helpful when family and friends visit you!   BU Bookstore: My parents wanted to get more BU gear […]

Kevin: Boston Public Library Book Sales, a Hidden Gem

The Boston Public Library is an awesome place to hang out. Whether you’re a bookworm and want to search through the millions of books (not an exaggeration, it’s the 2nd largest public library in the US) or you just want to get a coffee and sit in the courtyard, it’s easy to lose track of […]

Taylor: A Guide for Parent’s Weekend

It is incredibly easy to become stuck within Terrier Nation.  Don’t get me wrong I love showing visitors our fitness center and million dollar dining area but Boston is nicknamed the walking city for a reason.  There’s a wealth to explore. I used my MBTA pass at record amounts during a recent family visit. With […]

Hanna A: Film Student “Firsts”

The College of Communication at BU focuses heavily on giving students a well-rounded education. For the first two semesters, everyone must take general COM courses to introduce all fields offered within the college. We also take a variety of liberal arts courses, and not only does this style of introduction help solidify our choices of […]

Anneliese: Make the Most of Abroad

Hello from the future, my sweet Terriers! It’s currently 10:08am on Saturday, October 4th in Auckland, New Zealand, while it’s 5:08pm on Friday, October 3rd in Boston. Weeeird right? It’s also strange to think that my school semester here ends in 3 weeks, since I started in mid-July, and you guys are only a month […]

DJ: In Defense of Quitting

Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been the type of person who always gets involved with everything possible. Perhaps it’s because of my extreme FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out), but I’ve always tried to join every student group that seemed interesting to me. I remember attending Splash last year for the first time and […]
