College of Communication
I received the highest award from my college my senior year for my academic achievements, internships, professional development and activity in the BU community.
"These seniors have proven to be leaders at Boston University and COM," Bill Taylor, assistant dean for undergraduate affairs said. "They are active in the BU and COM communities. They are extremely talented in their areas of study and areas of interest."
