Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
It doesn't always click right away for everyone. Give yourself time to adjust if you don't fall in love with Boston College during the first week. Don't think you should instantaneously feel at home.
Campus Tours
If you are interested in Boston College, definitely make sure you schedule a campus tour! Many students who don't even think they are interested in BC see the campus and fall in love with its beauty and sense of tradition. Also, taking a guided tour can help you get to know the atmosphere of the BC community much more than reading a college guide or visiting the school Web site can. All campus tours are guided by BC students, so you definitely get the inside scoop and have a great chance to ask any questions you've been wondering about.
