Freshman Advising

First year students are transitioning to college and have to adapt to a range of new experiences, both in and out of the classroom.  To be successful, you have to learn about the resources available to you at Boston College.  Luckily, you have intensive course-based advising through Portico.

  • Portico Professor:  All Carroll School freshmen are assigned a faculty advisor, who is also your Portico instructor.  In addition to regular class meetings, you will meet with your Portico instructor for a variety of advising matters. In the spring semester, you will continue to meet with your advisor to discuss class selection, choosing your concentration, and any other academic and co-curricular questions. 

  • Portico Teaching Assistants: Portico instructors are assisted by their Teaching Assistants, Carroll School upperclassmen who will mentor their students both in and out of the classroom.

  • Dean’s Office: You are invited to participate in Dean’s Coffee every Thursday, 1:00-3:00 pm in Fulton Honors Common.

Portico students work on their Excursion presentation.
