Parkland, Florida - A Message from BC Undergraduate Admission


February, 2018

Boston College mourns the victims of the shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.  We pray that their families and the community will find healing and strength to move forward in the aftermath of this tragedy.

Education expands knowledge and advances society. It produces more thoughtful, more tolerant, and more compassionate human beings.

Boston College commends the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.  They have inspired high school students nationwide to remind us that safety, freedom, and peace are essential in all educational settings.

Applicants to Boston College who respectfully speak and act in support of these principles will not be penalized in the admission process.
