Check Out The College Snapshot Series From The BHS Guidance Blog

I am loving the College Snapshot series put out by our Guidance Department! There is some great information on each school posted by one of our guidance counselors following a visit to the campus.  The posts contain great pictures (see the photos below from a recent post by Ms. Diozzi on Suffolk University), information on most popular majors, and the data on acceptance rates for BHS Students.
Check out the whole series here.

Snapshot Info:  Suffolk, located at the corners of Tremont and Beacon streets and on Beacon Hill has a truly urban feel and also an historic feel. Originally founded as a law school, it is located up the hill from the State House and Boston Common and provides easy access to Downtown Boston and the Financial District.  Its location is terrific for internships in state government or major companies in and around Boston.  Suffolk is a major research university.  The student body is extremely diverse, as is the faculty.  Security seemed very good; for ex. because Daylight Savings time had just gone into effect that weekend, extra notices to be safe at night were posted in every dorm.  Views from the dorms were exceptional, overlooking both Boston Common and the Charles River.
