One thing I would change about BC is that students only get three years guaranteed housing making students move off campus junior year. This is very problematic if one plans on going abroad since it is nearly impossible to find subletters and the school does little to help you (and rents in the area are very high). Furthermore, they do give fifty percent of students on-campus housng and a good deal of the students are chosen randomly...so good luck if your friends get four years housing and you don't.
The academic workload at BC is pretty tough, but of course that depends on your major. Professors are pretty willing to help students and for the most part want them to do well. I am in the School of Education and a Human Development major, which is considered easy(for the most part true). This department has a lack of good professors and I look for challenging but rewarding classes outside of my major.
Definitely a lack of "artsy" people which has been disappointing. Most kids are pretty wealthy but BC gives very good financial aid so there are lots of exceptions to this. BC is pretty white but the percentage of AHANA students grows every year. For the most part students hang out with those who look like them - especially the Asian crowd. The one unique thing about the student body is how concerned we are with volunteering and participating in service/immersion trips. Many of the volunteering clubs are even competitive to get into since they are so popular.
The Best Things
the financial aid makes this school accessible for such an expensive school. It was much better than the other schools that I applied to which is pretty much the reason I came here.
The Worst Things
Housing lottery - where you live really changes your experience for the worse/better
