Welcome Month Activities

2015 graduate welcome month

Because we think you deserve a very special welcome, this is no longer just a week of events; we organize welcome activities for you throughout the entire month of September!

The Graduate Student Association and Graduate Student Life are planning a few events to kick off the year and welcome you to Boston College. It will be a great opportunity to meet other new and returning graduate and professional students, explore the city, and catch a BC football game.

WHO: All new and returning BC graduate and professional students

Below are events that were part of Welcome Month 2015.  Stay tuned for more info for 2016!
