When considering BC at a purely academic level, the school absolutely excels. The faculty is very knowledgable and many make an attempt to connect to their students, even in lecture courses. Like an college, you must pick your teachers and courses well or you'll wind up having a terrible experience. Thankfully, BC gives you ample time to research with courses to take and which teachers to avoid like the plague. At an administration level, some of the dean's are incredibly unfriendly, don't want to help you, and act as if meeting with you is a chore, while others are amazingly helpful.

The social aspect of the college is where BC falls flat on its face. On campus, there is a huge popped-collar wearing, wristband wearing, pink shirt loving ultra preppy group. Most people are friendly, but completely obnoxious and arrogant. Once you've gone to one BC apartment party, you've been to all of them. Way too many sweaty prepped out guys packed into a small apartment all waiting in line for beer. Its a shame, they all think theyre having the time of their life. If you come here, avoid these parties at all costs. Another thing about the girls here; they really aren't that good looking despite what you may have heard.
