Questions from a Spring 06 possible transfer

<p>I am pretty sure BU is where I would like to transfer… I’m coming from a large, midwestern state school, and would like to know more in particular if BU is what I’m looking for. </p>

<p>First, how culturally/politically aware are the students? I’m leaving my current institution because I want to be near a student body who is more aware of the world around them and interested in it as well </p>

<p>Secondly, is BU’s “diverse” reputation simply due to a large Asian population? I’m looking for diversity in terms of students being from all different backgrounds and therefore will be much more open-minded and curious</p>

<p>Thirdly, how cliquish is the student body? At my past school all the East Coast kids hung out with each other and all the midwest kids hung out with each other. I’m rather fearful of going to another cliquish school. </p>

<p>Lastly, is it just a small population of students who are rather artsy, or is it most of them? </p>

<p>Thank you anyone who goes to BU who takes the time to answer these questions for me. I’m rather nervous to transfer considering I was very dissatisfied with the student body at my previous school and although we had very vocal political organizations, I felt that most of the students were a little ignorant and close-minded.</p>

<p>can't anyone answer this for me? please?</p>

<p>Current students are more likely to answer your questions:</p>
