Congratulations on your admission and welcome to Boston College!

The Boston College Office of Undergraduate Admission is excited to invite you to the Keith A. Francis AHANA Weekend (KAF), which is a three-day, two-night program designed to provide admitted AHANA (African American, Hispanic, Asian American, and Native American) scholars with the opportunity to explore academic and extracurricular life at Boston College.  This year's KAF takes place from Saturday, April 7th through Monday, April 9th.

Our community of 9,300 undergraduates cannot wait to greet you and help you learn more about the possibilities at BC.  From the academic to the personal and social, the KAF is a chance to experience what Boston College students experience.

We encourage you to spend time exploring the Keith A. Francis AHANA Weekend Brochure and also learn more about the program below.  The following links provide many important details about the KAF.  Please take a few moments to review them and familiarize yourself with the weekend.


"Keith A. Francis AHANA Weekend provided me with an opportunity to tour Boston College, but it also gave me the opportunity to get to know individuals on a personal level.  This weekend is where I met my future roommates, where I was able to create close bonds with individuals who even decided to pursue their degree at other schools, and where I fell in love with Boston College.  If it was not for the Keith A. Francis AHANA Weekend and everyone I met during my stay, I would not have felt as confident as I did when I chose to attend BC."
