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

Caroline: Being Sick Away From Home

Its that time of year again when everyone and their mother is sick. Except your mother is actually no where to be found and you’re in your room at college, alone, wishing she could bring you some soup. One of the biggest differences with being sick at school versus at home is that everyone around […]

Christy: Top 5 favorite “homework shows”

I am not one to sitting in silence. When I do homework, I need to have some source of noise or I can’t get any work done. Although I love Spotify, my go-to for homework noise and entertainment is Netflix. Netflix typically occupies the upper left corner of my screen while I use the rest […]

Nick: Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone

Hey guys! My name’s Nick, and I’m super stoked to be joining the COM Ambassador team. I’m a sophomore studying journalism, and have spent much of my time at BU on WTBU’s airwaves, working in Studio West to produce Offsides, a weekly sports talk show through BUTV10, and covering various teams as a beat writer […]

Geena: My Four Tips To Surviving Boston’s Winters

Hi everyone! My name is Geena. Trust me, deciding to come to BU was one of the most exciting times of my life. But as an island girl through and through, the thought of leaving the Jamaican heat to brave Boston’s stormy weather was terrifying and exciting all at once. Here are my four best […]

Rachel: Deciding to Apply to Go Abroad

When I first looked at schools, abroad programs were not on my list of priorities. I looked for schools with active student bodies, internship opportunities, and engaging professors. You know, all the usual, positive things and things that BU has. It wasn’t until I got to BU that I realized going abroad is something people […]

Jen: Twenty Years, Twenty Lessons

Last Friday, I turned twenty years old. That is the strangest sentence I’ve ever typed. In the days leading up to my birthday, I felt I like I was have an almost-quarter life crisis. What have I done? I have never won the National Spelling Bee, I haven’t starred on a hit Disney Channel show, […]

Sam: Why I take a one-second video every day

It’s come to that point in the year where writing “2016” on paper ceases to be awkward and it becomes more and more apparent that time is flying by. I just officially declared my major (Yay! Journalism!) and I’m looking for a summer internship, but sometimes it still feels like I never even graduated high […]

Emma: New Semester, Newfound Love for My Planner

Hi everyone! My name is Emma, and I am so excited to be one of the new COM Ambassadors. The whole process of becoming a CA has helped me fall even more in love with COM, but today I want to give a shout-out to my other true love: my planner. Before, you scroll down […]

Claire: If You Aren’t Involved in BUTV10, This Is Why You Should Be

https://vimeo.com/91764902  If that awesome and inspiring video didn’t get you pumped then let’s see if I can. BUTV10 is Boston University’s student produced and managed television station. Our programming includes news, drama, science fiction, sports broadcasting, and even a cooking show. If you aren’t interested in the creative side of television students can be involved in […]

L.E.: The best part of my sorority experience

Being from Florida, I was pretty familiar with the idea of Greek life. I knew that Greek life was not as popular at BU as it was in the south, so I didn’t feel obligated to go through sorority recruitment. When I got to BU, I met so many amazing and inspiring women who happened […]
