2017 First Year Sendoffs

2017 First Year Sendoffs

 

Welcome Class of 2021 to the BC family!

Each year, BC parents host First Year Sendoffs for incoming students, transfers, and their parents. These social gatherings are a great opportunity to meet and ask questions of current students, parents, and alumni and to begin building your own network within the BC community.

More than 30 sendoffs will take place around the country this summer. You may choose to attend an event close to home or, if you are traveling or spending the summer away, enjoy one on the road.

Registration deadlines vary, so please select the sendoff you wish to attend and register by the date listed.

If you have any questions, contact the Parent Development Office at firstyearsendoff@bc.edu or 617-552-9083.

We look forward to seeing you soon -- Go Eagles!
