Read the winning college reviews below:
Friendly community within the college and in the surrounding town. Attractive campus in a lovely natural setting. Small class sizes. Teachers genuinely care about you! Easy to get involved in sports and clubs. Very affordable if you receive financial aid, financial aid office works hard to make sure you can pay.
Seems like the only things people do for fun are “party”. There’s not a lot to do locally, but if you get in with people who are from the area, you get to find a lot of cool things to do. Facilities/resources for academics are not update and/or lacking in important areas.
Would I do it again?
Yes, I love it, it’s great and I have had wonderful experiences. I feel like I am becoming a better person, I have experienced a lot of growth and am proud of my education so far.

Boston College is an exceptional school. The academics are enriching and challenging and I feel very proud to say that I am an alum. In addition, it is in the perfect location. It’s not right in the city, but just outside the city. The Chestnut Hill campus provides a safe feel and you are just minutes by T, bus, or car from the city. The social scene is great and the campus is simply beautiful.
I was put off campus my junior year – BC did not help me find housing – although it came to be my favorite year at BC. Living in an apartment as opposed to a dorm was great and I truly enjoyed it (besides the fact that the T passed by my window about every 20 minutes and having to deal with finding street parking!). One other thing was that, while there is a lot of diversity on the campus, there is a stereotypical BC student that you can’t quite get away from… wealthy, Caucasian, preppy students who are a little stuck up. Mind you, this isn’t every student and I found a lot of students more similar to me who I still keep in touch with.
Would I do it again?
Yes, absolutely. Overall, I sincerely enjoyed my experience at Boston College and my degree from Boston College is something that will be with me forever.
