Connecting Students to Growth and Community

Thrive Logo

Thrive is a mentor program for sophomore women to build new relationships and engage in authentic conversation. The program consists of weekly small group meetings facilitated by senior women, and one off-campus overnight retreat. Topics for discussion include passions and vocations, community and friendship, spirituality, goal-setting, and many others.

Take this chance to connect with upperclasswomen and mentors, build community, and talk about the shared experience of being women students at BC. You asked for a place to talk; we're here to listen. You asked for a community; we're here to build one. You asked for a place to grow; we're here to help you thrive. 

Sophomore women meet weekly with their small groups in the spring semester -- with selection happening at the end of the fall semester. Weekly 90 min. meetings occur with your small group of 8 sophomore women and 2 senior co-leaders. Weekly meeting times are determined by the group before the start of the spring semester. Other commitments include an all-program off-campus overnight (January 26-27, 2018), two small group activities, and two program-wide events.
