Boston College is simply a school that oneQuite BrightNursing
Boston College is simply a school that one should go to if you are white. Racist incidents occur at least once a semester where a white student vandalizes some kind of school property to either alienate minorities or people of the LGBTQ community. Super ironic with how their policy is "Men and Women for others" when BC administration clearly reflects that. I have warned you colored students, do not go here.

Question
Boston College is parochial in the worst senseBrightPolitical Science
Boston College is parochial in the worst sense of the word. They claim to be "Men and Women for Others" but the college doesn't do anything to promote those values other than state it. Study abroad is difficult rather than encouraged. Students who want to pursue internships are punished rather than encouraged. Rather than getting credit for my internship, I am being forced to attend another semester despite having enough credits to graduate.

Question
DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU HAVE AAverageCommunications
DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU HAVE A PHYSICAL AND/OR LEARNING DISABILITY!!!! I came to BC fresh out of brain surgery and they promised me that I would be registered in the Connors Family Learning Center and that they had a Traumatic Brain Injury Program. I was never registered in either of these programs despite my urgent inquiry and pleas for help. Boston college allowed me to fail, and refused to provide me the help I needed. Please don't make the same mistake I did.
