The Graduate Student Association is proud to present Grad Ball, a favorite annual tradition of our students. This is a night for students of all of BC's graduate schools to don cocktail attire and experience an evening of luxury at an iconic Boston venue, enjoying dancing, food, drink, and the company of friends. Grad Ball is sure to be an experience you will not forget.
