Extracts from this document...

Introduction

A great man, the father of the American Civil Rights Movement, an alumnus of Boston University and my personal hero once said ?A civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own death on the installment plan.? I believe that the Boston University?s High-School Honors program would do unto me the opposite of what Dr. King stated.

For the social aspect, a longtime friend of mine, Melody Kamigaki, currently a sophomore at BU has told me numerous times about how she admires Boston. Something different from Guam is BU?s city-integrated campus which stretches along Commonwealth Avenue. In addition to that, I would like to experience firsthand the enthusiasm a Red Sox and Celts baseball game. Coming from Guam, there are no world class sports facilities like the Green Monster. I hope I do get to experience this summer at Boston University. I believe BU will be the perfect fit for me considering the field that I plan to pursue.
