Hello! The Graduate Student Association is excited to meet all of you and we hope you get the chance to visit us at either the Murray House or at one of our fun and exciting events! As Director of Programming, I am responsible for organizing events to bring together the BC graduate student community (new and returning students). We aim to organize events that capture Boston College's values of excellence, scholarship, spirituality, and service. The programming we plan is just as diverse as our wonderful student body, so there is sure to be something that sparks an interest in you! That being said, another aspect of my job is to advocate for us fellow graduate students. If there is an event or activity you would like to see happen, I would absolutely love to speak with you about it! Feel free to email me at so that your voice is heard. Looking forward to an amazing year!
