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

Stacy: Pre-Summer To Do List

  The weather is nice, spring is in the air (or was a few days ago… typical Boston) and the summer season is right around the corner. You know what that means… time to go out to eat, explore and “treat yo self “(Parks and Recreation reference). So I’ve compiled a list of last minute […]

DJ: Summer Checklist

The summer in between high school graduation and my first semester at college was by far the best summer of my life. Since many of you reading this blog are about to embark on your last summer before stepping foot on Boston University’s campus in the fall, here are a few things that I did […]

Kaley: Freshman Don’ts from an Almost-Sophomore

1. Don’t wear your BU ID around your neck. I did this until my roommate felt comfortable enough to tell me that maybe it didn’t look as cool as I thought it did. She was right, it didn’t. 2. Don’t sign up for all afternoon classes thinking you’ll go to the gym every morning before […]

Life across the pond has been transformative. When you hear the words ‘Study Abroad’ don’t shove it off, instead embark on the experience.   1. The classes are extraordinary. Students are taught by spectacular instructors with a wealth of experience and credibility. Who ever thought 4-hour classes could be enjoyable? +For my core journalism course […]

Hanna: Schoolwork, Just-For-Fun Work or Both?

We learn to write hard news stories, features, screenplays, reviews, obituaries, memoirs and more, […]

Aidan: Open House Reflection

The temperature hit 70 yesterday, and COM had its first Open House for accepted students this past Saturday. All in all, a pretty stellar week. As a COM Ambassador, I sat in on many of the info sessions and talkbacks during the Open House, and got to meet a lot of excited perspective students. Perhaps […]

Will: Gearing Up for Summer

Three more weeks left. Three. More. Weeks. As soon as the sun comes out in Boston, it’s nearly impossible to focus on anything educationally important. Even during class, I find myself constantly thinking of all the activities I could be doing out in the sun instead: slack lining, running, laying, sitting, etc. However, it’s these […]

Hannah C: Freshman Housing

CONGRATUALTIONS if you’ve been accepted to COM, also known as the most spectacular place to receive a degree in the field of communication. In my book, that’s not an exaggeration.  One year I received my own acceptance letter, I know just how pumped you are to be one step closer to joining the next generation […]

Abby: Family Visits

This past weekend my mom was in Boston.  She was in town for a National Science Teacher convention, but she had plenty of time afterwards to visit.  I had so much fun being a tourist with her.  We went on a Duck Tour and saw a Red Sox game, ate dinner in Harvard Square and […]

In the last week, Boston has seen a big change (better late than never) as the weather has finally changed from the winter cold to a sunny spring. With this nice weather on the horizon it can only mean one thing for BU students. Summer is just around the corner. Here’s a few ways for […]
