What kind of person should attend this school?

Boston College is a university of future leaders and and a highly-driven student body. The school has been called a Catholic "Ivy League" school. Yet, this school is a Jesuit university, and, having lived there for a semester, I can say that this Catholic mindset definitely pervades the atmosphere of the school. The combination of this moral mindset and the school's call for success reflects on the student body; most students are people who are very intelligent and moral (not necessarily Catholic) but who also have common sense and a strong interest in volunteer work and extracurricular activities.

Someone serious about learning, but also very well rounded and social. Students are religiously active, but also like to party. Students who go here generally enjoy watching or playing in sporting events and the culture that surrounds that. Students need to be prepared for a larger size campus in which it is possible to get lost between the cracks of an overachieving student body.

The person who should attend this school is one who will not be intimidated by the "geeks" and "nerds" because quite frankly, everyone is smart at Boston College. One must be ready to be academically challenged in all of their courses; earning an A doesn't come easy, but if one puts in the effort, one will succeed.

Anyone and everyone should attend BC. There is a wide range of students who come from various cultural, economic, ethnic, racial, educational, and family backgrounds, that no one is out of place. You still have the ability to maintain your individuality on campus while being a part of something much bigger.

Someone who enjoys typical college events like football games, and standard college parties. Definitely not someone who denounces the status quo and considers themself a nonconformist. Generally outgoing, fun people will have the most success here.

Honestly I loved BC, anyone looking for a great, well- rounded education should go there! Its a mid-sized university so its big enough that you dont know every single person, but small enough that you are not just a number in the crowd.
