College Life Rating

Social life is great. Within the first few months people tend to find what they're really interested in and get involved in clubs. Clubs centered around diversity and leadership are extremely popular and are a great way to make good friends outside of the dorm. The sports games are huge and bring the whole student body together. Tailgating and cheering on the football team was so much fun my fall semester. If you get involved, BC is an incredibly fun and engaging school.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2000

College Life Rating

There is no Greek system, which I think is great. People were primarily "grouped" based on what activity they did. Like the theater people hung out with each other...the newspaper people hung out with each other, etc. I did theater at BC, and it was tons of fun because almost every weekend there was a performance of some kind and a big party afterwards. As for safety, I felt totally safe both on and off campus. I lived on campus my first two years and off campus the last two. I never felt like I was in danger anywhere.
