Boston College Reviews
I love Boston College because of the dedication of the professors and faculty to the success of students. As a first generation, low-income college student, professors and other faculty members that openly and outwardly express their willingness to help students creates an environment that I feel heard and seen in. The classes are intellectually challenging and some are even socially challenging as group work, team work, collaboration, and community service may be involved. Unfortunately, Boston College has failed to create an atmosphere in which students that do not fit into the 'white' or 'middle class' categories are able to feel comfortable in.
I love my experience at Boston College. The faculty here are the best teachers I have ever encountered in my lifelong academic journey. I have never had a bad professor at Boston College. The student body is great here as so many students find it easy to get along and meet each other with the multitude of groups and campus organizations/clubs that are eager to include students. Plus, the food is great!
Boston College is one of the most interesting institutions in the U.S. It's academics are seen as competitive to higher-level schools, with excellent faculty and professors included. School life is rather comfortable as well, with amenities for students in most places. But there are several issues; with a conservative stance for some administrators, there are clashes with the voice of the student body and the university. In addition, diversity has always been seen as an issue, with people of color facing adversities and lack of representation at times due to the rather unbalanced population.
