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

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 […]

Kaley: Thrifting in Boston

At the beginning of freshman year, I made an observation as I walked down Comm Ave. As far as wear-to-class apparel goes, every female outfit at BU falls in to one of three categories: trendy athletic clothes, trendy real clothes, or the most-rare BU t-shirt and jeans. As a freshman from a small-town public school […]

Jon: The Hub of Music

Jonesing to hear some great music? Whether you’ve got a taste for Rock, Americana, Electro, Jazz or anything in between, Boston has got you covered. A host of live venues are just steps from BU’s campus, ranging from $5 indie shows to big name headliners. Venture over the river to Cambridge, and you’ll find even […]

Tyler: Being Happy and Not Sad

They say if you love your job, you’ll never work a day in life. Well, “they” can shut up because I don’t want to hear about acute semantic vagaries. “They” might as well just tell me “if you’re happy then you won’t be sad,” and since everyone, ideally, gets a job, I think I could’ve […]

Sara: Boston Off the Beaten Path

So you’ve been in Boston a couple weeks now. Chances are you’ve been to Faneuil Hall, to the Common and Newbury Street – all the grand tourist-y spots. Which means you now understand the frustration associated with circumnavigating the tourists. But where to go next? It’s time to discover the places in Boston upperclassmen know […]

Hannah C: Keep COM and Tweet On

As the most social media savvy college on campus, COM rules the Twittersphere when it comes to school pride.  Last week we proved it when our #myCOM100 campaign, celebrating 100 years of COM, put the hashtag among the list of worldwide Twitter trends. Yes, that’s right — worldwide! Social media is integral to what we […]
