Your selection for Jump Start means you’ll be invited to join the BU community early, for a sneak-peek at college life— an early avenue to make connections and start building good habits and long-lasting relationships. The program is designed to boost your confidence in your academic work at BU by giving you experience in a college classroom, getting you first-day ready for life as a Husky.
You’ll be able to select from a set of Academic Workshops, and get immersed in a project with dedicated faculty and other students.
You’ll also get help with writing, math, advising, time management, and self-care. And yes, fun social events, too!
In all of this, the program connects you with peers who share your interests and with faculty doing exciting things in their field.
And since you move to campus early, you’ll begin to learn where things are, and what spaces and resources you’ll be using once classes begin.
We can’t wait to get started!
