BU is a city of its own; we’ve got our own police department, our own mail carriers, our own buses, but above all, at BU, we have our own culture. Culture is something to be consumed, but it also has to be created. At this blog, you can do both! As new undergrads here at BU, you’re probably eager to learn the ropes. Here, you can read our stories (and thoughts and opinions and hopes and ideas) and the stories of your classmates to find the answers to your many questions, but just as importantly you can answer them yourself. The best way to become part of a culture is to create it! This is your school, this is your community, this is your city – Tell us about your experience as someone New @ BU!
We are MUGS – the Mugar Undergraduate Greene Scholars – a group of students working for Boston University’s Mugar Library. We manage our own blog, The UnCommon Discussion, where we post stories, videos, podcasts and more. Billy Kirkland, a former member, put it best when he wrote: “Our group’s goal is to provide a platform for Boston University students to talk about things that actually matter in student life.” That’s what were here for, that’s what we do. If you’d like to know more about us, send us an email at email@example.com.
