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.
