Boston University Profile
It's About Soccer Culture
Boston University has a long tradition of winning, with a cumulative record of 236-108-30 at the start of the 2013 season. Another tradition is Coach Nancy Feldman, the one and only coach in the program’s storied history. Coach Feldman began in 1995 with a BU program that had just be raised from club to varsity status. Over the program's 19 year history, they have won 13 conference titles and been to the NCAA tournament 10 times.
Not surprising, the BU women's soccer team's consistent success is built around a strong culture. Coach Feldman describes that culture as, "We have been able to get great student-athletes that believe in being a part of a strong team culture of camaraderie, hard work and constantly looking to raise the bar to accomplish something a little bit more than they previously have, individually and collectively."

The Boston University Terriers play in the NCAA's Division I. In 2013, the BU women’s soccer team, along with a majority of the other BU teams, began competing in the academically renowned Patriot League.
“We are very impressed by the academic quality of the institutions in the Patriot League and by the league’s commitment to student athletics while effectively competing at the NCAA Division I level,” says BU President Robert A. Brown. “We believe that the philosophy of the league is a good match for Boston University and that the schools in the league will give our athletes a rich competitive environment.”
