Sports are huge at BC! Football, basketball, and hockey are the three big sports at BC, and pretty much everyone is in tune to how the teams are doing. Tailgating for football games is the highlight of many BC students’ experiences. Here, alumni, parents, and students run rampant through campus on the morning of the game, enjoying fall, food, and flavored beer. The spirit in the stadium is palpable and a total rush for any sports fan. BC prides itself on its athletic program, so you’re bound to catch a solid basketball, hockey, or football season. Lesser-known sports excel but don’t receive the same attention the big three. Intramural sports are also major at BC, with hundreds of people lining up on sign-up day for spots on the teams. Word to the wise: Get there early, or you could lose your chance at playing!
If you’re not into sports, BC might not be a great place for you. You certainly don’t have to get into sports, but you might feel a little left out as everyone revs up for game day and you don’t really care. There’s always the option of going to the games just to hang out with people, which can be fun and doesn’t require actually knowing the rules or caring about sports.
