Why I Chose BC:

I chose to attend BC because upon entering the building the nervousness associated with being in a new environment immediately faded. Usually applying to a new school can be a nerve wracking experience, but the warm welcomes and positive attitudes of both the students and faculty took that pressure off my shoulders. One of my highest expectations for a school is that it feels like my second home and BC is just that for me.

My BC is...

confident. If you would've told my 8th grade self that in less than 3 years time I'd be on the dance team, cheer team, and a co-leader of a club, I'd probably laugh in your face. My time at BC has brought me out of my shell a tremendous amount and I learned so much about who I am socially, as well as what it takes for me to step out of my comfort zone. This newfound confidence has opened so many doors for me and will continue to do so; for this I couldn't be more grateful.
