3 College Senior

Diversity: The athletics brings in almost all of the diversity. If you are not straight the school generally does not accept you. If you are not catholic the school does not except you! if you are not pro life you are hardly accepted by the students. almost everyone is preached at by the majority of the students. our school forced the student who sported a gay pride flag in his window in his room to take it down but did not force the student who sported the confederate flag in his window to take it down.

Academics: the workload is decent. there is not many opportunities that I found that the school helped me connect with internship or job opportunities. curriculum is mostly focused on things that follow the catholic church.

Academics: teachers are scared to teach the subject due to over sensitivity of the students. Anything that is somewhat not with or against the churches teachings is forgotten about in all subjects. there is no Woman's history month and no Women's studies class... there is way too much that each subject misses due to its nature, because it is too explicit. too many students are sheltered and the teachers do not help with worldly exposure at all. just about the only subject that they teach very well here is theology and it is not worldly study of theology or worldly religious, it is one sided catholic theology!!! teachers are mostly one sided on many topics and are extremely pushy towards the catholic religion!

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: not much to say here other than the flowers look pretty nice most of the time....

2 College Senior

Local Area: Small town. almost too small. there is not much in atchison. not too many grocery stores. the ones they have here are pretty bad and there are not that many options. walmart is pretty limited as well.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I have found some amazing people. most people are overly religious and that is a bit strange. the geekyness and smartness is good. cocky stuck up and overly religious is a drag. homosexuality is widely hated. this is no fun for those who are openly gay or lesbian. it is sad that there is so much ethnocentricity and hate toward anyone who is different in the smallest way.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I found some great friends!!! BUT the people are very sheltered. they go from one extreme to the other. The people make the school!

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: MEH not worth the money! parents love this place. It is super religious. There are way too many homeschoolers and teachers are too scared to teach their subjects!

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: the health department is seldom available at any convenient times. i have also been turned away. we were promised healthcare here and i have not received any. I had to go to the hospitals family clinic to be treated for illness both times i needed some sort of prescription.

1 College Senior

Greek Life: Tthere is no greek life at BC I feel like I missed out on having this as an option in college. I didn't realize that there was no greek life here when I applied because I didnt even care to look. however the option of taking part in greek life is something I wish I experienced!

4 College Senior

Athletics: This is a great place if you are an athlete! the facilities are not that great but it is something.!!

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It is soooo hard to get off campus. The process is a little ridiculous to apply for off campus as well as meeting the requirements to being approved for living off campus. and when you get off campus they turn you loose and you are on your own. I have been approved for living off campus and it was the best year at BC.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: there is not very many options off campus so if you go here get used to the horrible cafeteria food!

2 College Senior

Party Scene: you will never go out to meet people. it is the same people at the parties all the time. it is usually just a place to get drunk. and parties do not happen on campus.. i am truly wondering why that is an option. if they are on campus it is not a party.

2 College Senior

Administration: sometimes I just want to say that they are doing their job. The RAs or at least the ones in the female dorms are looking for trouble and are very nosy. They treat everyone like a criminal. You are treated as if guilty before it is proven. The rules are very strict. The school is a wet campus but the rules are so strict that the campus is still not treated like a wet campus. The visitation rules are way over the top. There is no one of the opposite sex in your dorm from 12am to 11:59am. This rule is very strictly enforced and there is much shame associated with even a small slip up. Everyone in authority then assumes that something dirty was happening. There is also a huge stigma around sex in general around the entire campus even though it happens. Bodies are shameful as well. Way too much in the media, tv, websites, movies, the plays that the college puts on itself the content is strictly monitered or blocked due to "explicit" nature. Come On We Are All Adults!

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I got the amount of scholarship that I needed to come here. Still the worth of the college and my experience is sub par. what I paid to go here is way too much for what I got.

2 College Senior

Campus Food: The food is really really really really really bad quality. You are forced to pay for a meal plan. You cannot serve yourself in the cafeteria. While you are being served certain proportions of food they judge how much they serve you based on your size. The food gets very old after a while and there are few options. the rotation of food is very basic and not varied at all. It is sad that they throw away so much food. some entire servings of meat are almost entirely fat. Everything is over cooked, under cooked and soaked in water or grease.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: I'm sooo sorry to say this but this school has tiny dorms. You pay a lot to go to this school and the dorms inside and out do not show for this. compared to my high school dorm my college dorm at BC was TERRIBLE!!!! You do not get what you pay for at all!

3 College Freshman

Administration: For things such as alcohol violations, a good job is done preventing it in the dorms for the most part, although it could be better enforced, as an RA has to physically walk in on someone drinking or receive noise complaints before investigating. Visitation is very strictly enforced, which is both good and bad.

Scholarships: The financial aid I received was for academics, and I was pleasantly surprised regarding the amount of academic aid I received. Fill out the FAFSA early, and be aware that the endowed scholarships only reopen after the current holder has graduated, which can be hard to determine, as there is no listing of which ones are open or filled when you prepare to submit an application.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food in the MCI is pretty good, but sometimes overpriced. The cafeteria food gets old after a while, because the options do not shift very often.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: There's an application process to get into the Teacher Education Program, but after that, it's a lot of fun and a great program.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Most students are white, upper-middle class. There is some diversity and it is growing, but slowly.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The BC Teacher Education Department really prepares their students for the field. They get the students in the classroom observing and teaching as soon and as often as they can.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: My professors really care and it shows in the content of their lessons. They are great at answering unexpected questions and try to uphold a reasonable work load. They have office hours available and are willing to meet with students for extra help.
