Boston University awarded academic degrees to 6,073 students in May 2013, many from the Massapequa area.
Among the Massapequa graduates was Nicholas M. Russo, who received a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry, Cum Laude; Samantha N. Lewis, Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Economics; Danielle C.

Massapequa area students were also named to the Dean’s List at Boston University for the spring semester. Each school and college at Boston University has their own criterion for the Dean’s List, but students generally must attain a 3.5 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) or be in the top 30 percent of their class, as well as a full course load as a full time student.
Students bestowed with this honor include Andrew J. Barbarello of Massapequa Park, Giovanny Jorge of Amityville and Catherine T. Curran, Danielle C. Etrasco, Mariel R. Hathaway, Olivia J. Hathaway and Samantha N. Lewis, all of Massapequa.
