Yes - Given by a wonderful speaker, it was enough to make me want to attend their college. Very helpful, easy to tell if BC is the right match for you or not.
Yes - Even in a cold, wet snow, the tour was eye-opening. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and she gave the impression that she thoroughly enjoys attending BC.
I visited the day before Easter break, so there weren't many students around, but the ones that I spoke with were generally friendly.
Extremely friendly, helpful staff. The staff helps to create a great community feeling.
Gorgeous. The architecture is absolutely stunning all across campus. Old, historic buildings are in beautiful condition, with stained glass, beautiful statues, and cathedral ceilings abound.
The historic buildings are beautifully complimented by high-tech facilities, including a completely wireless campus. The campus is spotless and everything is in pristine condition.
I didn't get to go inside the dormitories, but visitors should take note that 40% of freshmen live on Newton campus, a mile and a half from main campus.
No reason to feel unsafe here, but no reason to feel particularly safe either. Ordinary campus safety measures.
BC is a wonderful place to be. Great variety of academic, athletic, extracurricular, and spiritual opportunities.
BC itself is in a nice, suburban town.
6 miles from downtown Boston, you can't ask for anything better!
