Academics: Great academics, great professors, great classes. BC definitely emphasizes the whole person. Some professors of Core courses do suck and shouldn't be here. Overall, the work here is challenging and it was my safety school.
Academics: I have had some really great professors and some that are impossible to listen to, but if you use BC PEPS to find the best professors, you will be able to get professors that you like most of the time. The registration process can be frustrating, but often if you wait it out, certain classes will open up and you will be able to get into most of the classes you wanted. The workload is very challenging for science majors, but is definitely manageable for most other majors.
Majors: I have had a lot of experience working at local hospitals that I would not trade for anything. I have learned so much in Boston's hospitals and have made connections with professionals that I know will be helpful when I begin my job search after graduation.
Majors: There are plenty of opportunities at Boston College to figure out what you would like to do, you just have to take the time to explore. I am not really concerned about finding a job in my field, BC has a great career center.
Diversity: Everyone on campus is very accepting of other races. Although diversity has increased at the school in recent years, I still feel that this can improve further. However, most students are open minded and learn from each other, which makes the existing diversity at BC great.
Diversity: At first it may seem like there is not much diversity on campus, because many students try to fit in to their idea of what it means to look or act like a BC student. However, when you have deeper conversations with people, you can be surprised to find that people come from a variety of backgrounds.
Guys & Girls: People here are SO BEAUTIFUL for the most part. It can actually be pretty intimidating. It's the norm to go to the plex a few times a week. The hookup culture is strong, and dating is not super common, but that's the same on most college campuses. There are also a lot of serious couples. This is also the first place where I've ever met someone who's said they're "waiting for marriage."
Guys & Girls: I'd give the girls an A because for the most part they are attractive, smart, athletic, and hardworking but like to have fun. Both the guys and the girls are fairly preppy and have a lot of school spirit. The guys in general are not as good-looking as the girls, but most are nice if you stay away from the athletes.
Administration: If you’re being stupid and rude, you will get in trouble. If you are smart about what you are doing and polite, you can go 4 years without getting written up. Also, nothing even happens when you get written up.
Administration: If you don't make noise, you generally don't get caught. Noise violations are the most documented; looking even slightly intoxicated will, however, get you written up. Freshman can't have water boilers, which is annoying.
Campus Food: In general the campus dining is very good. There are not many places for dining, so Lower Campus is very crowded a lot of the time, and unless you want to wait in long lines, it is good to go at a time when it is less busy. The food is good although it can become very repetitive. Addie's, above Lower Dining Hall, is one of many students' favorite dining locations on campus.
Campus Food: The food at Boston College is, in general, probably better than the food at most college dining halls. Of course it gets old, but there is decent variety, and also they occasionally do days where they feature food that is different and special. There aren't too many places to eat in walking distance from the school, but Chipotle, Starbucks, and other local dining options are a free ten-minute shuttle ride away.
Campus Housing: The dorms are amazing and surprisingly spacious, provided you're not a Newtonite or CoRo sophomore. Food is decent, campus is beautiful and so small it's a five minute walk to classes from most housing. However, these amenities don't justify the cost of the university and many opportunities cost additional money (admission to sporting events, etc.)
校内住宿：如果你不是Newtonite 或者 CoRo大二学生的话，宿舍很赞，令人想象不到的宽敞。食物是不错的，校园是美丽的，大多数宿舍到教室都只需五分钟。然而，基础设施和所交的钱不成正比，和很多项目都要另外付钱（像体育赛事等）。
Campus Housing: All freshmen dorms are grouped together which helps with the transition into the first year. Freshman either live on Upper Campus on the Chestnut Hill Campus or on Newton Campus which is a 5 minute shuttle away. The dorms are simple but in very good condition. Most buildings have laundry facilities in the basement.
Health & Safety: Health Services is average and they honestly do nothing for you if you're sick and they don't seem to care. Sexual Assault has been unheard of in my experience so far, but the administration thinks its nonexistent which is incredibly ignorant. And it perpetuates the fact that they think their religious campus is perfect.
Health & Safety: This campus is very safe. The neighborhood around the school is wealthy and family oriented and there is very little crime. The same environment can be seen at BC. When crimes do occur, the campus police are diligent, very nice, and approachable.
Transportation: Boston College has two different bus circulations which are the Newton bus and the Commonwealth Avenue bus. The Newton bus runs from Main Campus to the Newton Campus, which is a mile away from campus. This bus runs every 15 minutes from 7am to 2am. The Commonwealth Avenue bus runs from Main campus to off campus every 15 minutes as well.
Transportation: Transportation in and around Boston College is extremely convenient. The school provides a free bus, known as the Commonwealth Ave. Bus, that will take one on a loop around campus and to the Reservoir T stop on the D line. From there, one can use the T to get most places. But if you need a different T line, both the B line and the C line are in walking distance from various stops on the Comm Ave bus.
Local Area: It's great to be so close to Boston. I also love that we live on a beautiful campus and we're not in the city. But it's so easy to get to. There surrounding area is super welcoming and supportive of BC students. The surrounding residential neighborhoods are clearly very wealthy and nice. Also great shopping in Boston and at the Chestnut Hill mall.
Local Area: Chestnut Hill is nice but expensive and hard to get to. The Cleveland Circle area is very accessible via the Comm Ave bus, but it's really limited as far as things to do. It's definitely easy to get to Boston, though, and there's a lot to do there, obviously.
Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of food places off campus. The BC shuttle takes you right to Cleveland Circle where there is Chipotle, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Applebees, and plenty of other restaurants. (Asian, burger joints, breakfast places, deli's, FroYo, convenience stores) Lots of the local food places deliver to the dorms up until 2 or 3 am.
Off-Campus Housing: Great Options, at Around the Cost of on Campus Living – The off campus housing at BC is great, being at or a bit above the cost of on campus living. The off campus houses at BC are all located in one area, where BC runs a free shuttle bus to the main campus. This is great beacuse even when you live off campus (most do junior year, some sophmore year like myself) you are still close to both on and off campu friends.
校外住宿：很棒的选择，在各地校园生活成本 - 在校外住房在BC是很好的，相当于或略高于校园生活的费用。在校外的房子都设在BC一个区域，在那里BC有免费穿梭巴士到主校区。这是多么棒的一件事，因为即使你住在校外（大多数人大三时，一些sophmore一年像我一样），你对于校外和校内的朋友都能够依旧很亲近。
