Boston College Graduate Reviews

Boston College is a great place to learn and grow. The student body has a variety of people with different interests, and professors take the time to get to know their students. Additionally, the campus is absolutely stunning and a joy to walk through to classes. The University does lack in diversity and often the administration doesn't deal with issues properly. If not for these, I would rate my four years at BC a 5-start experience.
