as a current BC undergrad, I can answer this one-
its not that hard to get into the city from Newton campus. BC has a bus service that takes students from newton campus back to the main campus, where you can catch the other BC bus to the various lines of the Green line. The fastest way to get into the city from newton campus is to go to main campus on the bus, switch to the comm ave bus and get off at the D line stop- 30 minutes to get from Newton to Fenway/park street etc isn't all that bad.
In terms of the Newton campus itself- it has a lot of green space, something BU doesn't have at all, being literally right on Comm Ave. Personally, I chose BC over BU (undergrad) for that very reason.
