A well-respected, private university located in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay, BU is the nation’s fourth-largest private university. In a city with many colleges, BU is an excellent choice. While there is little campus in the traditional sense (the city of Boston is difficult to separate from the campus), the College Experience is still one of the better available at a large metropolitan university.
