Living and Learning
The advising process at Boston College begins before you enter the University. At January Orientation, you will meet with an assigned faculty advisor to discuss your academic interests, degree requirements, and how to register for classes. In addition, the Academic Advising Center hosts events such as "Professors and Pastries" - a weekly series that gives students the opportunity to meet informally with faculty, advisors, and professionals.
