Everyone’s COM journey is unique from the rest, but no matter what path you end up on, I can promise you that it is going to be an incredibly rewarding experience- and one you will learn so much from!! Just for fun (and to give you a sneak peek into how great this community is) here is my story for you.
So my experience with COM started months before I ever stepped foot onto the BU campus! It was at the College of Communication’s admitted students open house. Before that day, I had never been to Boston before – not even for a general college tour- so I really had no idea what to expect, and I was VERY nervous.
I walked into the Tsai Performance center where I was immediately met by friendly faces and welcoming smiles. Everywhere I turned, there would be a student in blue. These blue-shirted people were EVERYWHERE, and I remember feeling overwhelmed, yet oddly comfortable, as I could practically feel the enthusiasm and positive energy in the air. Later, I found out that these students were the COM Ambassadors, and the more I heard their stories and experiences at COM, the more I fell in love with the idea of attending BU. These students talked about everything, from their fears to their failures, to their favorite moments and everything in between. By the end of the day, I was hooked, and I knew that this was where I wanted to be.
Fast forward a couple months, and it was finally time for everything on campus to start and come to life! I met with my CA group where I met some wonderful people, and got a chance to get to know my COM Ambassador! (Whom I absolutely adore and who has made such a positive impact on my first semester here) In the beginning, I didn’t really know where to start, but my CA encouraged me to join BUTV10. Taking his advice, I decided to join COED and Bay State, which was by far one of the best decisions (if not THE best decision) I’ve made since setting foot on campus. Through BUTV10, I’ve met so many kind, friendly, funny, and all around awesome people that I am now lucky enough to call my closest friends. BUTV10 has given me a solid community who want to see me succeed and will do anything to help me do that. That’s my favorite part about being in COM. The people you meet are passionate and excited about what they do, and they genuinely want to help you in any way they can.
Now, that’s how far I am with my story at the moment. I could go on and on about how I have the best CA, how I think everyone should join BUTV10, or how amazing COM is, but I think I’ll stop here and let you see for yourself. Go out there and don’t be scared!! There are so many things to do at COM, and you don’t have to wait! Just jump right into all the action- you’ll be glad you did! 🙂
