Dear VSCEagle : You wrote the following.
On other posts people said that new ideas die at BC, I didn't think this is true but how accepting is BC of challenging tradition.
The Jesuit educational tradition is about scholarly challenges to the established views. Now, it is insufficient to challenge ideas by simply stating your view; instead, Boston College's liberal arts core presses students to strongly support their perspectives with a structured, well constructed, and substantiated argument. Those who are not able to provide the proper backing (references) for their ideas will walk away saying that their new ideas "died" at BC. This might seem a satisfying explanation to some, but I can assure you that it is not the case.
