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!
I have wonderful professors and have the opportunity to take a diverse range of classes. From Public Health in a Global Society to Modern Latin America and Medical Humanities. A beautiful campus, making it a wonderful atmosphere to learn.
Boston College is a good blend of academics and social life. Boston College is one of the only need blind schools in the country, allowing for students of all walks of life to attend the school.

BC education is top notch. Professors are awesome and the culture is fun, especially with D1 sports!
Really great buildings and professors. I found my visit to campus to be very welcoming and its absolutely beautiful! Everyone loves it who goes there.
It's a great school. It has a lots of resources. Everyone in here work hard, and party hard too. The school is beautiful, I am proud to say that it's the prettiest school in Boston. I like its school vibe so much.
Boston College offers an excellent academic experience. The location is perfect because it offers a campus experience with easy access to the city.
I would like to see an improvement with the academic advising office, it was incredibly difficult as a freshman to navigate course selection. Additionally, the housing selection process is messy and unnecessarily complicated.
I'm not exactly sure what I was expecting, but this school has a lot of privilege attached to it. I know that is true of most highly ranked universities, but the majority of the students here do not understand they live a complete different lifestyle than others.
My overall experience at Boston College has been excellent. The majority of professors that I have had here are great and genuinely care for their students. While classes are tough and there is definitely academic competition, my academic experience has been challenging, but extremely helpful and rewarding. There are hundreds of clubs on campus and service is a huge part of the community.
Boston is a great and interesting place to learn and develop life skills that would enable you impact a lot in not only your society but the world at large.
Boston College is a great school with an even better campus and environment. The school is very connected to its religious history and it is evident that it still plays a big role in the school today. The campus is very clean and the buildings are beautiful. There are plenty of activities to do and you will never get bored on campus.
The BC experience has been phenomenal! The staff and other students are so welcoming and always more than happy to answer any questions that you have about the enrollment process or just about campus life in general. Choosing this school has been one of the best choices that I have ever made. Go Eagles!
It's great unless you're an aspiring medical student. Classes can be very difficult along with the grade deflation.
Boston College offers an amazing environment for students of any race, religion, etc. From the outstanding academics to the vibrant student body, Boston College challenges students but also gives them opportunities to express themselves through various campus activities.
The experience is all about what you make of it. Freshman year, there are many students who are unsure of their decision, but by the second semester of freshman year or by sophomore year, everybody starts to love BC. There are some really great professors (Wolfman) who really care about their students and an excess of clubs to join. People here definitely love to party, but don't be fooled, most of us are still hard workers and bang out an essay or two every weekend.
Overall, I love it. There is a friend group for everyone. Also, if you look hard enough, there are endless resources for students to accomplish what they want.
Absolutely beautiful campus in a lovely location. Though Boston College is located outside the city limits of Boston, public transportation directly connects Boston College's campus to all the activities available in the stimulating city of Boston.

Boston College has an exclusive environment that does not allow freshman to get involved. It has a beautiful campus and the professors are nice, but in order to make freshman feel connected to the school they need to make it easier for them to get involved. Academics are good but party scene sucks.
Boston College truly provides the means for any student to flourish in the real world and cares for each student. The campus is beautiful, and the school provides all the resources needed for the ultimate college experience. Great faculty!
Boston College a challenging and interesting curriculum. It has such a beautiful campus and offers many opportunities for student involvement (volunteer opportunities in particular – even ones that tie in with certain courses).
