Boston is often referred to as the history by the water. It is a city with so much history in and of itself that it carries with it the gravity of it having so many buildings from the birth of a nation.
For those who studied US History of AP US History would know that many significant events in the American history have occurred in Boston such as the Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party, Battle of Lexington and Concord, and the Battle on the Bunker Hill.
This makes Boston that much more special.
Boston University was founded in 1839 and claims to have more than 33,000 undergraduate and graduate students from more than 130 countries.
I am one of them. Having so many people come from so many different backgrounds, it is very interesting to walk around campus.
Encountering people from places that I never would have visited, I am able to get a glimpse of what diversity is supposed to look like.
We don't really have a closed campus like other universities or colleges do. It's very linear.
Starting from Kenmore Station, maybe even further east than Kenmore Station to Pleasant Street Station is our campus.
It is down Commonwealth Avenue which makes it impossible for a person to get lost on our campus. All you need to do is walk straight.
However, it's hard if you can't walk through short-cuts. Well, it gives you a good workout.
