Welcome Class of 2014

Welcome to life on the Heights and the start of an exciting four years at Boston College!

Welcome Week is Wednesday, August 27– Monday, September 1. 
As you arrive we would like to be sure you are comfortable making this major transition, connect you with some of the opportunities, offices and people on campus and introduce you to the exciting, historical city of Boston before you begin classes on Tuesday, September 2. To that end, we have planned a number of events for your opening weekend beginning with a welcome barbecue on Wednesday, August 27th in the evening.  Additional activities will include an academic fair, open houses across campus, a football game, a hypnotist performance, and opportunities to explore the city of Boston.

We hope that you will take advantage of as many of these activities as you can. Please note that some of the events are mandatory for all first year students.
