Founded in 1863 by The Society of Jesuits largely to educate the Irish Catholic population of Boston, Boston College quickly grew into the research institution it is today. With an enrollment of over 14,000 students it is ranked 32nd in the nation among universities of its kind. The college grounds its educational programs in a liberal arts curriculum regardless of a student's chosen major.
Though Boston College as been criticized for its homogenous and largely white student population, earning it the nickname 'J. Crew U,' it has made great strides in creating a more diverse student population. Student reviews of the university speak to this issue and generally agree that Boston College has become more diverse and its homogenous population has more to do with the Jesuit affiliation and the types of students it historically attracts.
The university is known for its beautiful suburban campus and rich campus life which gives it a tremendous sense of community. This seems to be much of the appeal for students at the university. The location and its proximity to everything the city of Boston has to offer are major draws for Boston University.
Also a Division I athletic school, sports are a huge component to life at Boston College.
