    At Boston College, each year the First Year Academic Convocation begins with an assembly of freshmen, where faculty, staff and administrators challenge the class to, ‘set the world aflame’. Students then take their first flight, a torch-led procession through Gasson Hall, down the Higgins stairs, and on to Conte Forum to hear a guest speaker.

          • 2012-2015, Master of Social Work (MSW), Clinical/Medical Social Work

            A quality program that truly prepares you for the field- the right blend of practice and theory that I carry with me today. Anyone looking to get their MSW should strongly consider BC.

          • 1974-1978, Bachelor of Arts (BA), Psychology

            Pride of graduates. To earn pride a university must exemplify what is best in our society….ethics, open mindedness, intelligence, philosophy, academics, athletics, honor and support. BC has been part of my life since I was child. It is the only place I wanted to attend. It lived up to all of my expectations. The bonus is I met my wife of 37 years at BC (although it took four years for her to go out with me). Thank you BC.

          • 1973-1977, Bachelor of Arts, Political Science and Communications (Double Major)

            I received a superb education at BC and also expanded my cultural horizons and grew emotionally while there. I know it might sound a bit cliche' but BC changed my life and definitely for the better. BC provides the perfect environment for study and offers exceptional extracurricula activities - there is something for everyone and everyone is made to feel a part of the BC family.
