Boston College is life changing. The school is challenging academically, socially and spiritually. I have made lasting friendships and my professors and I will continue to stay in contact for years to come. A word to the wise: don't believe all of the hype about BC's "prepster" crowd or about the "lack of diversity here." Just because we wear polo shirts does not mean we are all dripping in wealth and attended private Catholic boarding schools. I went to Catholic school, but I worked all 4 years at BC to help fund my education. You'll be hard pressed to find a top-tier school without an abundance of wealthy students. As for diversity, consider this: the national percentage of what Boston College calls AHANA students (students who are African, Hispanic, Asian or Native American) is right around 30%. Boston College mirrors that national average. BC is well worth the investment. Work hard, get involved, explore all the opportunities for fun (which far exceed just parties and "drinking" on Fridays), go into Boston, study abroad, do research in your major…this is advice I would give to all new BC students. If you're not happy here, I'm guessing you're a rather difficult person to please.
commentTo clarify, the national average of AHANA students who go onto college is 30%, and the percentage of BC students who identify as AHANA is 30% as well. Good luck to all future Eagles!
