PULSE Office Move to Stokes Hall
Since close to its founding, the PULSE Program Office has been in McElroy 117. The location was chosen based partially on availability, and partially because of the grass-roots student-driven nature of the program. In the 40+ years since taking up residence in McElroy Hall, the PULSE Program has grown and evolved, but remained true to its founding principles.
Today, the PULSE Program is housed in the Philosophy Department of the College of Arts & Sciences. THIS WEEK our office is moving to Stokes Hall with the Humanities Departments - where it will be, for the first time, located in the same building as its faculty and parent department. On the first floor of the new building, our new office is on the corridor that was designed as a 'walk-through' for students and visitors to campus. It is our hope that the nature of the corridor, and proximity to classrooms will increase our ability to interact with, and to better serve PULSE students, alumni, and faculty.
We are excited for the opportunities that the new space will provide!

Launch of revamped PULSE website!
In anticipation for the upcoming move to Stokes Hall, the PULSE Office has considered the ways in which its website can better serve current students, supervisors, interested community partners, alumni, and the Boston College community at large.
We welcome all to explore our site, and to email PULSE with any feedback!
