Milk & Cookies

Watch the recording of Milk & Cookies here.

We are excited by your early interest in BUA and look forward to getting to know your family in the coming year. While we had hoped that we would be able to host you on campus this spring for our annual Milk & Cookies event, we are adjusting our plans to keep the health of our community and guests as our top priority and look forward to (hopefully) welcoming your family on our campus this fall. In that spirit, we hope you’ll join us virtually to hear from recent graduates about their experiences at BUA, what they miss most about our community, and how their time at BUA impacted their transition to college. Grab your Milk & Cookies–we can’t wait to “see” you online!

This event is intended for rising 8th graders (currently in grade 7) and their families only.
