Friday, September 12, 2014. On behalf of the Hispanic Heritage Steering Committee (HHM) I am happy to announce our 6th year celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month at Boston College, from September 15th through October 15th. As we celebrate this month, it is an exciting opportunity to create greater awareness to both students and the community of Hispanic and Latino cultures.
Dear Boston College Student:
As we head into spring, I wanted to let you know about some of the many campus and community events throughout the month of April, including Asian Pacific American Heritage Week, C.A.R.E. Week, Black Family Weekend, and the Boston College Arts Festival. For your convenience, we’ve created a comprehensive roundup of events. I hope you will take advantage of Boston College’s numerous cultural, social, and spiritual opportunities. I also want to direct you to our comprehensive sexual assault resources webpage, which has comprehensive information for survivors, including the booklet entitled You are Not Alone. www.bc.edu/sar.
On behalf of the Division of Student Affairs, I wish you an enjoyable and successful rest of the semester.
