As we move into the registration period for first-year students, it bears repeating that the Core faculty are happy to offer advising help, especially if you have questions about how the second semester of Core fits into your larger academic goals. We’d be glad to talk about what you can expect in the second semester, how to fit Core into your major, the possibility of staggering your Core classes, etc. You can sign up for a meeting in the Core Office, CAS 119, or, if you like, contact Profs. Nelson or Eckel directly.
Welcome!The Core Blog is a hub for information and media related to the CAS Core Curriculum at Boston University. It will be updated regularly, with photo galleries, interviews, links to related reading online, news of events or activities, and other kinds of content that help connect our Core people—prospective, current, and former students—with each other. You can stop by here once a week to scroll through the posts, or make this your homepage in order to keep your finger on the pulse of the Core. Either way, we hope you find this to be a pleasant way to strengthen your connection with the great people, the great books, and the great questions we encounter in the Core.
