I received a great education at Boston College. The connections I made are really valuable and have helped me in my career growth. The professors at the university are highly educated and are ready to pass that knowledge on to the students.
The population that attends the school tends to be homogeneous. More diversity would have been great.
Boston College has a great student experience with Boston, a train ride away, and all the green space on campus. Finding a major and coursework that you enjoy is easy and I have had a lot of classes that were simply made by the professor's excitement. The work is hard and the studying is even harder, but it's all worth it when you have all of this real-world experience that bolsters your knowledge.
The school's sticker price is misleading, especially as it raises more and more each year you attend and the institution's financial aid packages don't reflect that increase. As my studies have stayed relatively the same, I can't as confidently say the loans were worth the price. Note: one entire year was spent outside of the classroom as BC followed CDC guidelines.
I love the professors and the small class sizes because it is more personal than a 300+ person lecture. I love that BC encourages you to volunteer and they have volunteer partners ready to help you find a good place to volunteer. The social life at BC is a little difficult at times because there is a divide between those passionate about academics and those passionate about experiences. This can be overcome after the first year :). The food is amazing and they always try to do something different so that you do not get tired of it too quickly. Boston College is a T-ride away from the city which is also an experience.
Social life could be a little awkward at times. The tuition is a bit too high but worth it. Overall BC is a great school.
Boston College is a community full of students who want to learn so they can go out into the world and make positive changes. Academics are rigorous, so you will be working hard all the time. Professors want to help you succeed, but you often have to make the effort to reach out to them for extra help. Lots of opportunities available on campus, in the surrounding area, and through the alumni network.
The housing process typically has a lot of drama associated with it and many friendships are lost. This is something that I've heard about most schools, but it is still upsetting that this happens at BC.
Boston College provides the perfect balance between social life and academics. The campus is close to Boston while also having your own BC hub. Football season is exciting and there's lots to do on campus. Professors are extremely helpful when you need help.
BC is about a 30-40 minute train ride to Boston so if you are looking to go into the city often, it is not the most convenient.
The campus is amazing. The football team is D1 so the games are packed with tailgates, fireworks, and sometimes even navy jets flying over the stadium. The school is LIT! Boston College requires outstanding academics to be admitted, however, and their education reflects that. While school is a fun place to be, it is also an amazing place to learn and prepare for a future career.
It's not a huge campus but they're a lot of stairs. Get used to walking. You'll find there are hidden elevators eventually.
