About half of the students interviewed were totally unaware of the athletic scene at BU, and the remaining students pretty much agreed that there are a decent amount of athletic opportunities for those who are interested. The athletic facilities are rapidly improving with the new addition of the tennis and track center at the Student Village. There seems to be more attention being paid to BU athletics by the administration over the past two years.
Hockey is, by far, the most celebrated varsity sport at BU. There is a “Beanpot” game every year between BU and BC, which always escalates into a party. While BU is not a huge sport mecca, pretty much everything is offered, from Frisbee golf to basketball to snowboarding to sailing. Except . . . there is no football team, so if that is your thing, your best bet is to look elsewhere.
