"Valuing education solely based on academic prestige, is simply missing the point. Liberal arts education constructs a personality, a personalised outlook upon a wide range of issues, which allows the student to not just know but to understand."

"At BCB, learning is not confined to the classroom. Seminar discussions evolve into lunchtime conversations, and you will find yourself grappling with ideas over drinks with friends. Students here are adventurous and explore the best of what the college and the city have to offer."

"Critical thinking has enabled me to see the bigger structures affecting our lives, such as class, race and gender, and what their effects are on the lives and material realities of both individuals and groups."

"As I am one of the very few, among the millions of Syrian refugees, who were displaced and still able to continue higher education, I am very appreciative of the education I am receiving at BCB."

"BCB is like Hogwarts: Studying the liberal arts in a little-known neighbourhood on the fringes of Berlin, we might as well have our noses pressed to potion books in a haunted castle in the Highlands of Scotland. We're wizards in training -- knights of the liberal arts. One day we'll be saving the world from magical mayhem."

"Be it the gym, the backyards or the reading room, there is always that feeling of you being able to engage in activities with your peers, a closeness that is much harder to achieve or make sense of, were you to study at a big university."

"Meeting so many students from around the world was something I was hoping for after high school, but I didn't expect to delve so deeply into learning about how cultures differ and how the things we are taught can change the way we think."

"This is the first time that I have ever been in a place filled with so much diversity, yet have the feeling that we are all equal. This is a special feeling for me."
