Alexander Graham Bell, the man credited with creating the telephone, gave his first lecture in 1873, for the School of Oratory.

            • 1959-1960, AA with Honors

              College of General Education....

              I attended CGE 1959-1960, and thought it was an excellent introduction to higher education for the cohort of ex-GI's I attended with. Working in cross-disciplinary terms, it introduced us to a Western Civilization-based "History of Ideas"; much of it was its excellent faculty, dedicated to the concept. It has since folded, and I still wonder why. I'd love it if anyone at CGE -- or BU in general -- could respond to that on this forum.

            • 1989-1991, MSc

              Great Systems Engineering School!

              I graduated from College of Engineering in 1991. BU had the best software systems engineering program in the country! Loved ever minute of it. The faculty was great, and provided an environment where it was not all academic, but practical business engineering projects and discussions. Good options were introduced as well through Harvard, specially the course on Engineering Management. Highly recommended.

            • 1980-1984, Bachelor of Science (BS) 2x

              Boston University changed by life, personal and professionally

              I got two BS degrees/BUCOP program at BU and even today I benefit from the high Quality of the professors, the availability to learn with/from other classmates and visiting professionals. The great variety of people - from all over the world, the ambitious, driven, motivating "Can Do!" spirit on campus. Besides having the best Communication Department and Hospitality college - living and studying in the city of Boston is a gift by itself.
