Getting an education is better than flying a kite, so it’s no wonder that so many students let “lightning strike” by attending the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology in Boston! Funded by money bequeathed by Franklin himself, this college offers academic programs unique to all of Massachusetts, including the B.S. in automotive management and an A.S. in biomedical engineering technology. About five hundred students here enjoy the benefits and personal attention of small class sizes (the student-to-faculty ratio is just 11 to 1) as well as over $2 million in financial aid and a 90% job placement rate. And time and again, faculty here prove their dedication to their students via the Academic Success Center, which offers free tutoring and professional advisement. Sponsored housing puts students right at the heart of Boston; the Stuart Street Hostel is within easy walking distance of Chinatown and the Downtown Crossing, not to mention the BFI campus itself. Plus, a men’s soccer team competes in the NJCAA (Go Chargers!) Fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology carries the pioneering spirit of the founding fathers into the twenty-first century and beyond!
