    Communicate with your admissions counselors and any other BSC employee as much as possible. Any time you have a question or concern (about anything!), reach out to them. They will appreciate your interest in the school, and it might work in your favor in your application process.

    If you are looking for a party school where you can slack off and your professors won't notice, do not take BSC into consideration. It is very easy to be involved on campus, and the more you do the happier you'll be. The campus is one of the nicest when it comes to Division III colleges and students love how open and beautiful it is. During nice weather it is not uncommon to find people hammocking across campus.
