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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

They really try to pump you up to get you here. Once here though, you feel like they only want your money. I hate the crappy off campus apartments. They need some new dorms, not old garbage. There are times you feel like the religious stuff is being jammed down your throat. As far as the students go, there are alot of cliques among the guys. If you are not a jock or incredibly handsome, alot of girls wont even give you the time of day. Its somewhat depressing that with the cold as you will freeze your butt off in the winter.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston College has quite a reputation among schools in the area. For all that's said about it, its a bit underwhelming. The program catalog and selection just don't hold up to other schools in the area, including our rival BU. But there is a certain school spirit here that becomes infectious.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It was a university built for me. It has everything I could ask for from decent humans to good food and great classes. I have overloaded courses both semesters because I couldn't choose which ones I wanted to take. I wish everyone had the opportunity to go here. The only downfall is that it is insanely expensive. I am stressed over the debt.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a very intellectual environment; however, they also encourages its students to take part in various clubs or organizations that pique their interest. Boston College pushes its scholars to challenge themselves in and outside of the classroom; they want to us to further our thinking by questioning the world that surrounds us.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

We're a good school, but we definitely don't stand out. We have limited academic choices. The only people with true educational freedom here are the kids at the college of Arts & Sciences. Everyone else seems to just be getting the qualifications for a job, as opposed to an education of choice and curiosity. I also think we need a more diverse faculty. We need more people of color teaching things that pertain to people of color here. Also, our campus is kind of small. If you're not from here or you don't take the initiative to branch out, you'll get stuck in the "BC Bubble."
