    If you are a student looking for a school that has it all, look no further. BC has an inviting atmosphere with a friendly, considerate, well-rounded student body, and of course top rate academics. While BC is a Jesuit university, it is not necessary to be Catholic to attend. In fact, BC is very aware that is important to have a diverse student body, and it welcomes students of all backgrounds. Apart from the core philosophy and theology courses there are no compulsory religious requirements once on campus, and it is possible to be unaware of the schools religious affiliation. On the other hand, students looking for a religious culture will not be disappointed. Campus ministry is very active and has a number or resources waiting to be tapped in to. Sports fans will not be disappointed with the variety of NCAA division I sports such as football, hockey, and basketball. Another note of interest is that BC has no Greek life. Nevertheless, students have a “work hard, play hard” mentality. Weekends are always bustling and there is never a loss for fun on campus or in Boston. Academically, BC offers a variety of majors and is well known for nursing, education, and business. Science and pre-medical classes are also very desired, as well as political science, English, and communications. Regardless of majors, however, BC students walk away with a fantastic liberal arts education. read full review

    Boston College has a fantastic student life. It's close to Boston, but not too close, bridging the gap between a quiet, suburban neighborhood and the city's energy. Transportation is inexpensive and efficient, granting students access to the city's museums, internship opportunities, and happening night-life. But leaving the campus is not necessary to relax and have fun. Dorms are spacious, clean, and are all within close proximity of a dining hall, which are open until 2 a.m. on weekends. The food is superb and most students have ample resources on their meal plan to dig in or pig out. Football, basketball, and hockey games are a blast to watch (especially when BC beats Notre Dame). NCAA Division I athletics, club and intramural sports, hundreds of student clubs and activities, plays, concerts, and visiting lectures are all great ways to stay involved. While the university does not allow fraternities or sororities, there is still an active party atmosphere for upperclassmen of the legal drinking age. With all the extracurricular activities and welcoming student body, there is little pressure or need to drink. The university's Jesuit heritage makes it an attractive campus for Catholic students, but the religious persuasion is not at all in-your-face, leaving plenty of space for the religious beliefs of every student. read full review
