A transformative journey at Boston University
Tips: Transitioning here can initially be a little daunting as it's a new country and you will need to adjust to a lot of changes in personal as well as academic life. What makes it easier is that people in the town, as well as the University, are really nice and helpful throughout, you have to be prepared to give time to your academics as well as some time to exploring the city and learning new things.
