Why choose BIC?

We asked our students what they love about BIC and why new students should apply. Over and over they praised the close-knit community, the amazing BIC professors, and the stimulating classes. Watch this video to hear it straight from our students.

“Why choose BIC?” is a question requiring a student to look at both their academic and personal pursuits. BIC is not a one dimensional program. The BIC curriculum challenges students academically, but it also aims to foster personal growth and character development. Students are also challenged to look at every issue through a world perspective. As you consider if BIC might be a good fit for you, you might want to ask yourself some of the following questions:

  • Do you enjoy class discussion?
  • Are you tired of reading what other people think and not having the opportunity to discuss what you think?
  • Do you want to actually read the great thinkers, rather than just read about about them?
  • Do you want to major in biology (or business, or theatre, etc), but do not want to give up reading about cultures and ideas?
  • Are you looking to make the most of your entire undergraduate education?
  • Do you want to fully understand things, not just memorize them?
  • Are you tired of memorizing information for tests? Do you want to really learn?
  • Do you want to learn in a smaller, more closely knit community of students?

Are you ready to apply?
