35 Tuesdays, 35 Terriers, 35 Inspiring Pieces of Advice | Hey BU Blog

This year, the Instagram series #TerrierTuesdays featured inspiring students and their journeys at BU. Each of these dogs took to BU Instagram for a day to share their experiences about getting to BU, where they are today, and their aspirations for the future. They took us with us for a day in their lives, shared their passions and hobbies, and connected with fellow students who joined us to ask questions and follow the journey. While every story is different, every student is asked the same question: “What advice would you give your fellow dogs?” Take a look at their words of wisdom below.
