Macy: Five Reasons Why COM is the Best Place on Earth

As a transfer student at Boston University, I feel as though I have a unique perspective on how great the College of Communication truly is. Before arriving at BU, I had toured a lot of other schools, exploring the pros and cons of each communication program. However, the moment I first stepped foot into COM, I had an overwhelming sense of belonging wash over me. In that moment, I knew I was home. Here are just some of the many reasons why COM is the best place on earth:

  1. The Faculty

COM has world class faculty that are, not only the best at what they do, but also extremely engaging in the classroom. It is truly amazing to learn from experts and to hear about what it will actually be like to work in our respective fields upon graduation. Whether they are Pulitzer Prize winners, former CEOs of major public relations firms, or current journalists for The New York Times and The Boston Globe, the professors at COM certainly know what they are talking about.

  1. The Classes

COM offers a very diverse selection of classes to prepare students for life after college. There are academic choices offered of course, but COM also offers fun and interesting electives for students in each major to experience. Each class is taught by professors with incredible expertise, and they are also taught with real-world knowledge and practices in mind.

  1. The Atmosphere

When you first walk into the building, COM’s atmosphere takes over your senses. You can feel the sense of community right as you open the door. The hallways are filled with the bios of COM’s remarkable faculty, inspiring pictures taken by alumni, and movie posters that COM played a role in.  

  1. The Clubs/ Activities

COM offers the best clubs/ activities on campus that teach you as much as the classes do. Some activities include: PRSSA (the Public Relations Student Society of America), WTBU, COM Student Assembly, etc. The opportunities for students are endless.

  1. The People

My favorite part of COM are its students. I have never met people that are more enthusiastic, passionate, and focused. Before I came to COM, I felt unsure of myself and my ability to follow my dreams successfully. However, after meeting other COM students and getting to know them, I began to believe in myself. The overwhelming sense of support I gather from the people around me pushes me to do everything and anything I set my mind on.
