Hey newly accepted freshman!! Congratulations and welcome to BU! We are honestly so excited to meet all of you – the upcoming open houses are great opportunities to meet future classmates and get all of your questions answered by us COM experts. But that being said, there’s a couple ways to maximize what you get out of open house – so here are my tips and tricks!!
1. Get to the first event early! All of the COM ambassadors and many of the professors and advisors will be hanging around to chat with you – and it’s a great opportunity to get some one on one time and get a feel for what being in COM will be like!
2. Don’t skip lunch! We split the parents and students up for lunch – which means it’s a great time to bond with your future COM class without your parents hanging over your head!
3. Get the contact info of people you click with! Remember that everyone is in the same boat feelifn alone and a little nervous about this new chapter in their life – so challenge yourself to add new friends on Facebook or exhange numbers. You’ll thank yourself later when you need a friend to sit with in COM 101!
4. Put yourself out there and be YOU! You will get a ton out of open house of you put a ton into it!
See you all soon!
