Chestnut Hill Named 4th Most Expensive "College Market"

Boston College's home, Chestnut Hill, MA, is the nation's 4th most expensive college market for home prices, behind the towns in which Stanford, Cal, and UCLA/USC reside. According to the first-ever Coldwell Banker College Market Home Price Comparison Index (HPCI), the average 2005 price of a Chestnut Hill home is $811,525.

This statistic is somewhat misleading because only a portion of BC's campus lies in Chestnut Hill, and is therefore not a "college town" in the traditional sense. To the extent that it ignored housing in Allston-Brighton, this index is flawed.

How about more hockey coverage?

What, this isn't enough for you?

I was planning on updating BC hockey (weekend action, big win over UNH, Ryan Shannon AHL rookie of month, and some other little bits) this afternoon. The reasons that I hold back some sports coverage are 1) I am only one person running this blog, 2) there are a lot of other much better BC sports blogs/sites out there and most importantly 3) I am trying to cover sports and non-sports evenly, because while the Flutie Factor helped put BC on the map, and a news search of Boston College yields 80% sports articles, there is a lot more to BC than what goes on in Conte/Alumni...

Amen to that, BC Eagle ... compared with last year, it seems like sports occupy an even greater % of BC hits in Google news searches this year. Even the BC homepage seems to be resorting to more sports stories. Someone should remind Public Affairs that their job is to promote BC's academic reputation, not what Mary Daley infamously termed a "jock school."
