Boston College is a coeducational, Liberal Arts Jesuit university with an undergraduate student population of 9,000. The campus, build in 1913, features the finest examples of Collegiate Gothic architecture in the United States and is quite visually stunning. The university's flagship building, Gasson Hall, towers above "the Heights" (the local term for the campus) and its bells can be heard for miles in all directions. Stop in the McMullen Art Museum in Devlin Hall and admire the fine art, as well as the stunning architecture of the admissions building, chosen as the most beautiful building in Boston in 2006. Football games draw the largest crowds, so beware of driving nearby during game days. Boston College mixes the resources of a large research university with the individualized attention and strong community more often found in small Liberal Arts colleges, and both students and faculty benefit from this. Come and enjoy the rich history that the University is steeped in and take an unforgettable stroll around the campus!
