BC lives up to its Jesuit ideal in offering a well rounded, liberal arts experience. Small class sizes and engaging professors are essential parts of all classes.

    I visited BC in April and the campus is beautiful and clean. Students seemed happy to be there and every person that passed me smiled. My tour guide was also very informative and he was only a freshman!

    BC is a great place to go to get a classic, New England education! The teachers, in my experience, have been very approachable and knowledgeable, and everyone on campus is quite helpful! The biggest drawback is the uniformity and exclusivity of some of the student body, but everyone can find their niche.

    Go to BC if you want to have fun but get a premium education. Professors and deans care about student education as much as health and having fun. Alumni connections and job prospects are incredible coming from Boston College.

    Boston College is an elite university breeding the leaders of tomorrow. Our motto is Men and Women for Others. We also like to follow the Catholic Jesuit Ignatian ideal of Lighting the World Aflame.

    Great Jesuit school with the nicest people you'll find around. Ideal location near Boston which offers tons of opportunities off campus and in the greater community. People at BC love BC - there is so much school spirit, the sports atmosphere is great, and people rarely have a bad thing to say about Boston College.
