Reflections through Time is presented by the Boston College Women’s Resource Center and Boston College Libraries to showcase the past and present accomplishments of recent alumnae and current female students of Boston College. As Boston College celebrates its Sesquicentennial, the exhibit aims to highlight the various ways in which women have contributed to the growth of the university and the fulfillment of its Jesuit mission.
The exhibit features four prominent alumnae who have established themselves in various professional fields and illustrates how their work at BC inspired them in those pursuits. The exhibit also highlights six current students who enrich the university in a multitude of ways. The exhibit seeks to increase the visibility of women in the history of Boston College. The final exhibit element is a mirror which acts as an impetus to encourage current students to reflect on their potential, to examine their current involvements, and to harness their power to achieve success in their post-graduate pursuits.
