All About

Living In Boston University, MA

Boston University (BU) was originally established in 1839 as the Newbury Biblical Institute in Newbury, Vermont by members of the Methodist Church. After a two decade stint in New Hampshire as the Methodist General Biblical Institute that began in 1847, the school once again relocated to Boston as the Boston Theological Institute. It wasn't until 1869 that the school was designated Boston University with the support of founders Isaac Rich, Jacob Sleeper and Lee Claflin. In its capacity as a new university, BU made itself available to a diverse range of students, regardless of religion, sex or race. In 1937, BU established its permanent home along the Charles River just north of Kenmore Square.

Famous alumni of BU include Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Howard Stern.

According to its mission statement, BU "is an international, comprehensive, private research university, committed to educating students to be reflective, resourceful individuals ready to live, adapt and lead in an interconnected world. Boston University is committed to generating new knowledge to benefit society."
