Ascend Leads

We would like to say a huge thank you and CONGRATULATIONS to the Senior Leads of the Boston College Class of 2014. We will miss you, but look forward to hearing of all of your adventures to come. Rock on.

Check back in September for information about applying to lead and participate in Ascend for 2014-2015.

Ascend is a program for sophomore women to meet new people, enjoy good conversation, and explore horizons at BC and beyond. The program consists of small group meetings facilitated by senior women, group outings throughout the spring semester, and one off-campus retreat and hike. Ascend is supported by the Center for Student Formation Staff.

Ascend is an opportunity to make more friends- in addition to those you already have. It's a chance to connect with upperclasswomen and mentors, build community, and talk about the shared experience of being women students at BC.

You, Boston College women, have the opportunity to build a great experience. We want to help you make it better.

Be more. Climb higher. Ascend.
