Halftime Lead Applications
Halftime Lead applications are currently closed for the Spring session.
Check back next semester to apply to be a Halftime Lead for the Fall.
What is a Halftime Lead?
Halftime leaders are responsible for giving a talk and facilitating small groups of participants. Halftime is a free weekend away to share your experiences with others, meet new people, and connect with BC faculty and staff. It will be the job of the leaders to help participants understand the themes of Halftime and talk about how to implement these themes into daily life at BC and beyond. If you enjoyed your Halftime experience or would like the opportunity to lead a retreat, you should apply to lead Halftime!
Who is eligible?
Lead applications are open to ALL students in the class of 2017 (rising seniors) and the class of 2018 (rising juniors) even if you have not been on Halftime.
