3 College Freshman

Facilities: I wish the BAC would focus on student life outside class more. The school should facilitate the ability to do school work IN school since there is no campus or housing campus. A good way to do that would be open studio spaces 24/7.
The BAC's work is mostly done OUTSIDE of class, thus the school should be able to facilitate the outside work being done in school as most architecture schools.

Majors: Being able to manage your time is essential for this school. Loads of work are given out, especially for our studio classes. They are often to build models, or to draw plans, which can take several hours to perfect.

Guys & Girls: There are several international students and also students around the neighborhood. They are all very talkative and willing to share their ideas with one another.

Campus Dining: There's no cafeteria in the school where we can actually go and buy a lunch from. However, the school is situated in one of Boston's most popular streets, Newbury street. It is crowded with varieties of restaurants that are just a walking distance away.

3 College Student

Computers: There's one floor where all the computer labs are. Sometimes there are classes going on, so the labs become minimal. Also, there is only one scanner for larger scans, thus one will need to wait one after another before using the scanner. This can become very destructive, as during final projects, many students use the scanners.

Health & Safety: Mostly Safe – Fairly safe, very little crime in the area or the school except for the occasional theft.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Minimal Options – There are only select computer labs with the programs like Photoshop and AutoCAD at the Boston Architectural College. Sometimes they need them for classes, so the times you can use them are very minimal.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Not Enough Credit – The amount of credits a student can handle is very minimal (usually around 9) because the work load is an insane amount to do in one week. The professors are working professionals as well, so they don't seem to be as engaged (some are though) as they could be. Because of the minimal amount of credits I have been able to take throughout the two years I've been there, if I try to transfer to another school I'll still be a 2nd year even though I'll be in my 3rd year of school. It's exhausting and it's common for students to sacrifice sleep for their projects and work to be complete. After all the work we do, we don't get enough credits at all.

Parking: I don't own a car personally but from what i've observed there is literally no parking. I'm sure there is a parking garage, but the T is extremely reliable. So no parking no problem, you can go where you need to in the matter of minutes. Newbury St is a long, busy street if everyone just parked there then it would be almost impossible to get back & fourth.

Campus Strictness: Strict but Fair – Like any college there has to be guidelines and how well they are being followed. The campus is strict in areas of causing harm to others or to property. Other than that i can't complain is seems fair in all aspects. I'm sure there are regulatory rights in which strict discipline action must be taken. To me Boston Architectural College is a second home and you don't walk around your home with muddy shoes do you?

4 College Student

Health & Safety: Building Lock Down – The safety at Boston Architectural is extremely reliable. Upon entering the building they are visible and you must walk by them to get where your going. The guards are friendly and seem to take all steps to insure the safety of all the students as well as faculty. I've yet to experience any threatening crimes or come across anything presenting harm towards me or anyone else. Overall at Boston Architectural College the building is locked down!

4 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Building Dreams – Boston Architectural is full of life and beauty. It's located with in the downtown area, borderline fenway home of the Red Sox. Shopping is available all through the Newbury St area. There are many sites to be seen, makes going to school worth every moment.
