The Recruitment Office provides campus tours for individual students planning to attend BU in the near future. The main focus of the campus tour program is to introduce prospective students between grades ten and twelve or older to the many benefits and features our campus has to offer. A student ambassador (current BU students) will act as tour guide for your tour. Our campus tour program is a basic one hour tour of the campus that includes a walk through all of our buildings. If you are planning to attend a lecture or would like a more involved tour, then go to our "Student for a Day" program. Contact Suzanne Letain at email@example.com to book your tour!
