3 College Student

Nightlife: Underage nightlife is pretty nonexistent especially within the city. As for parties at school we have one once a year called PARTI that is pretty nice.

4 College Student

Facilities: Generally no matter when you are at school you are bound to bump into someone you know which adds to the sociability of the school. In relation to academic programs friends in other programs can at time become nonexistent since the schedules of class are generally set up differently.

College Student

Campus Housing: We do not have any form of on Campus Housing however they are working on changing that.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: We have many choices of dining especially since we are on Newbury Street, the only downfall is Boston can be very pricy when it comes to food.

5 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Being directly in Boston is great! We are so close to everything, it's really nice to just go somewhere or explore in between classes or while taking a break

4 College Student

Computers: Every computer lab is equipped with pretty much any software you would ever desire to use in the design profession. Though during midterms it can be quite hard to find a computer to use. The only main issue is the fact that in order to use the wifi on either your phone or laptop every time you want to use it you have to re-log into the network as opposed to just automatically syncing.

5 College Student

Greek Life: We do not have any form of Greek life.

3 College Student

Parking: Since we are directly in Boston parking is pretty much nonexistent or very expensive. Although since the t and bus are right near by many people just use that form of transportation.

3 College Student

Athletics: We do not have any sport teams or athletic facilities. One thing we do have is about 6 different clubs to join each pertaining to a specific major and 1 pertaining to the LGBT community.

Academics: The fact that I'm in one of the few accredited B. Arch programs in the US is amazing. However the fact that I can't move on in my education if I can't get practice hours by working is rather ridiculous, especially since architects is one of the most unemployed majors. In addition being in a 7 year program and obtaining only a bachelors degree is kind of embarrassing.

4 College Student

Academics: The teachers seem to all know there subjects quite well and each have something to contribute to your education. The work load isn't too bad all though sometimes studio can be a bit much. Also the fact that most classes are conflicting in scheduling with studio makes it rather hard to quicken your education and shorten the 7 years.

4 College Student

Transportation: There is a t-station and bus stop just a block away from the school.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: My school doesn't have any dorms so they just give recommendations on areas to look for cheap apartments.

2 College Student

Scholarships: My school's financial aid department is a nightmare. They've made constant mistakes in the past, most recently the beginning of last semester I had to wait almost three months after my starting date to receive the money I was being given. In addition it seems I'm running into the same problem now, I've still not received anything. The best tip is no matter what they say keep calling them and seek answers.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: we have a good library

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: A lot of the guys at my school are gay. but they are so much fun to hang out with

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It has been a good experience. My school is unique in its work/school program

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It stinks to commute to school in the snow

College Sophomore

Campus Dining: We do not have campus dining

Off-Campus Housing: Boston is a college town. Due to that apartments are very expensive, low quality, and the ones that are near the school are impossible for a student to afford. Roomates are a necessity, not only to help pay for the apartment but to stay safe when walking around town by the use of the "buddy system". Boston has a high crime rate, there are areas that are safer than others, but overall, especially for a woman, it is not wise to walk alone.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers at Boston Architectural College are easy to use, set up to easily print out documents, and contain just about every computer program an architect student would need. I give the rating a B- because of the limited amount of computers available and the restricted times a student can use them. If there is a class going on and sometimes there are classes back to back, a computer is hard to find.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: The BAC has multiple campus locations that are all located close together in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston. Each campus building has a security guard by the front door and it is in a fairly safe neighborhood.

Parking: Parking in Boston is in general very difficult. Due to the location of the BAC it is a really tough task to find parking in a timely manner. However, for the ones willing to spend a lot of money, there are always the parking garage across from school.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The architecture program at the BAC works really well due to the ability to network with real firms and real professionals out there. There are a lot of exposing ourselves to these people since our professors are actually professional workers.

Facilities: The concurrent program at the BAC works better in theory than in practice. The faculty does not explain well how the practice credits count down really works and the students will only find out that these practice credits have nothing to do with REAL practice hours for the architecture license (example: IDP hours) when they are already in too deep into the program.
