Off-Campus Life Activities and Events
office of the dean of students
Off-campus students are encouraged to participate in the BC Breakfast Club (Sundays at 10:30am, usually after home football games). Volunteers are given a Breakfast Club t-shirt and spend about an hour cleaning up the off-campus neighborhood. Clean up is followed by a free and delicious meal at Eagle’s Deli, courtesy of the Office of the Dean of Students. To participate in the Breakfast
Club, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students who are found responsible for off-campus infractions are often unaware of the impact of their behavior on their neighbors. The Friday Night Heights workshop promotes citizenship, civility, and responsibility by educating them on their civic responsibilities and helping them to devise strategies for preventing problematic behaviors off-campus. It also fosters students’ identity of themselves as good neighbors, instead of temporary visitors in the community. Students are also given the opportunity to reflect on how their actions reflect on both the BC and off campus, local communities.
Friday Night Heights (FNH) is a collaborative effort between the Boston College Office of the Dean of Students, the Boston Police Department, and the Allston Brighton Substance Abuse Task Force. Off-campus students who are found to be responsible for violating university policies or city ordinances may participate in the Friday Night Heights workshop reduce their University Probation to Housing Probation. Students can only attend the workshop once.
