Whether you are an Apologist or Critic of BC, there is one adage most observers would agree on about the Jesuit Intellectual Institution,
Boston College isn't for everyone!

If you possess an intellectual curiosity in the Humanities, well-rounded social skills and a highly-developed sense of humor, you will enjoy a very fruitful experiece at BC.

If you make the

claim to be open-minded
yet impose your political, social and philosophical world-views on the rest of the School, then BC probably isn't the right School for you.

Despite the BC's reputation for it's Conservatism, there's a running inside joke within the Faculty that BC is actually an acronymn for "Barely Catholic" due to the large number of Liberal Professors who teach there.

BC embodies everything of what many Students envisage as the ideal School. It has arguably the most Beautiful Campus in the Best College Town in America. It competes with much success in Division 1 Sports despite the high Academic Standards the Student Atheletes must adhere to. The Academics are intense, challenging and very interesting. It boast a solid reputation in the Business World, in particular Wall Street (Buy Side and Sell Side).

Yes, it's very Preppy but in a good way. :)
