The objections raised here are indeed valid. I love BC. I love everything it stands for in its charter, history, origins and Jesuit Philosophy. There are many things I don't love about BC such as the aforementioned "homogenous" Student Body. If you seriously weigh and evaluate this objection with the criticisms levied against other elite institutions you would arrive at the common agreement that all schools have their share of problems. For example... If you are a Christian Student at Harvard, you would likely feel uncomfortable with the brazen and zealous Atheistic Faculty and Student Body. If you are a Football enthusiast, you are probably wondering why such an elite school such as the University of Chicago a non-factor in the Big 10. If you are a Conservative-minded Republican, you are likely perplexed at the number of intolerant "Liberals" at Brown who champion "democracy" and "free thought" yet denounce views that oppose theirs. The diversity of Student Programs are there if you challenge yourself to find them out. If you're into Music, BC has a broad range of choral and a capella groups including a full orchestra. If you're into Politics, there are large organizations to suit your political persuassion. If you're into Debate, check you the St. Ignatius Society. If you're into Art, BC just hosted a massive 1 week Art Festival on Campus. If you're into Culture, nearly every ethnic group is represented in to form of a cultural organization...on an on it goes... As far as BC being "Euro-centric", check out the programs in Black Studies, Asian studies, Slavic Languages, Islamic History and Theology, renown program in Judaism, etc. The College experience is what you make of it. The reality is the Negative Reviews are sourced from a very, very small minority (using this term statistically) against an overwhelmingly large base of loyal supporters who love BC. Investigate this claim for yourself.
