Boston College, not to be mistaken with Boston University, is a private Jesuit college. Its campus is very visually appealing, unique, and quiet; it is a rural looking campus in a less busy part of Boston. However, it is a very short distance from downtown Boston. It is not a selective school with around a 30% admit rate. The school is not very racially diverse with a 70% white population, but Boston College is working on increasing its diversity rates among students and faculty. Boston College has its own police, multiple exercise facilities, dining halls, dorms, and extra-curricular opportunities. I am definitely considering applying for this college, even though I am a non-Catholic, non-white student.
