its interesting how people chose to defend BC by saying that those who do not like the school are introverts or simply didn't try hard enough. i believe that everyone has a right to like or dislike a place based on their own experiences. with that said, i am an involved student, and tried very hard throughout the year to make BC my home, but there are still many undesirable aspects of BC that cannot be ignored or pushed aside. the homogeneous population, the lack of appreciation by the total student body for the concerns of students that do not fit the homogeneous profile, the lack of interesting, diverse courses (for such a large school, why is the education incredibly euro-centric?). yes BC has great things about it - sports and school pride, academics, social and cultural organizations, rank among other private universities etc. But when you defend BC, acknowledge the fact that this place isn't perfect, and don't dismiss the negative comments that go against what you believe by saying they're by students from other schools. BC isn't for everyone and is certainly not perfect. Believing that makes one closed-minded.
