AA Meeting: Starting September 12th Boston College will have a weekly AA meeting in Greycliff Hall, 2051 Commonwealth Avenue basement. This meeting is open to both Boston College students and the public. Meetings will be held every Thursday from 8:00-9:00 pm.
Recovery On-Campus Housing: Boston College has an exciting opportunity for students in recovery.
