What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston College provides a great educational and extracurricular atmosphere. Academics are the main focus of the school with the business school especially providing students with an abundance of opportunities and helpful tips on how to succeed in post-graduation life. Internships are readily available and professors have the necessary experience to connect classroom lessons to applicable real-life situations. Along with academics, there are hundreds of student organizations for students to participate in. Personally, I am in cultural clubs, athletic clubs, academic clubs, service organization clubs, and art clubs. As a result of these clubs, I have been able to meet a variety of different students and make strong and valuable connections that have enhanced my overall experience at Boston College. If I had to give one piece of advice to incoming freshmen, I would strongly recommend that they join multiple student organizations. A religious atmosphere is present but is definitely not overbearing. Students are required to take philosophy and theology classes but professors rarely share their own ideas in order to leave out personal biases. Overall, Boston College has provided me with an excellent start to my college career. I have been able to step outside my comfort zone and expand my academic horizons to help make me a more personable and experienced citizen of our world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I could not have picked a better college. The people at BC are some of the most authentic, genuine, caring, and intellectual people I've ever met. We are close to Boston for lots of cool opportunities but also have the big sports culture and academics, without giant class sizes! 10/10

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston College is academically rigorous and offers many extracurricular activities. Most students are able to find a balance between success in the classroom and having fun outside of the classroom. There is an array of extracurricular activities for all kinds of students and parties are common on the weekends. Sports events are always filled especially the NCAA Division I football and hockey games. Intramural and club spots are also popular among students that are not world-class athletes. Diversity is one area that BC could improve in as the majority of the student body is white. There are many affinity groups throughout campus though.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

An amazing place where work hard, play hard is embodied in every way. Students are eager and ready to learn, professors are dedicated to their work, and there are so many amazing ways to be involved outside of the classroom as well. One of the most gorgeous college campuses I have ever seen as well!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was really impressed by Boston College when I went to visit. Not only is it a beautiful school, but it is close enough to the city of a Boston to have easy access while far enough away to still have a traditional campus feel. I was initially worried about religion being a major thing at the school as I am not religious but religion is as big or as little of a deal as you make it for yourself and there is never any pressure for not being religious.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school is rigorous and worth the hard work to attend. There is a great community and a lot of pride surrounding attending Boston College. The school is all around amazing to be apart of. The students have a great attitude toward the world, because they grow used to contemplating the importance of being a good person in community service.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston College is perfect for those looking for a large school in a college town setting. It is actually a university in Chestnut Hill and their food, academics, and professors are the main highlights of the school. Often, professors will invite students over for dinner and get very close while also providing access to research opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston College is an amazing college full of opportunity. The student body is politically active, spirited, and engaged with the community. The college is large enough that you can always find a crowd that is right for you, but still see familiar faces around. The only downsides are that the food is not that good and you have to wait in line a long time to get it. Also, the majority of students come from affluent, Irish Catholic upbringings. BC is a Jesuit institution but it is not so "in-your-face" about it. Overall, a great college with very stimulating courses, passionate professors who want you to succeed, and a diverse and very involved student body.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall BC is a great university. If youre white youll be fine, students of color might struggle more than their white counterparts because for many students of color, this is their first time being surrounded by so many white and privileged people. Everyone will seem richer and more well off than you. But the clubs, students, orgs. etc make up for this and in the end, there is a strong sense of community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston College is a great university. The classes are interesting, the professors engaging, Catholic identity, and the people are extremely nice. The party culture is present if needed, but is certainly not too crazy or even required for a healthy social life.
