A PROGRAM FOR FIRST-YEAR WOMEN
BC WOMEN REACHING NEW HEIGHTS
Ascend, which was formerly a program for sophomore women, will be re-launching in Fall 2016 as a program for first-year women. Ascend is a program for participants to meet new peers, enjoy meaningful conversations, and explore horizons at BC and beyond. The program consists of weekly small group meetings facilitated by junior and senior women, a group activity with your small group, and one off-campus overnight. Ascend is supported by the Center for Student Formation staff.
Take this 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.
**For sophomore women, please consider applying for Thrive, a new program for sophomore women supported by the Women's Center.**
