Boston College's Sesquicentennial Year in Review

The Sesquicentennial was an occasion for BC to celebrate 150 years of tradition, legacy and growth, but also an opportunity to consider the University's mission and role as a distinctive Jesuit, Catholic institution of higher learning in the larger world. Sesquicentennial events included the Mass of the Holy Spirit at Fenway Park, a special concert at Symphony Hall, a Founders Day celebration, a convocation that featured Harvard University President Drew Gilpin Faust as keynote speaker, and a program of symposia on a number of societal concerns.
