Student Life

The Boston College campus and the city of Boston seem as if they were designed with graduate study in mind. Boston teems with professional and cultural opportunities, while our campus offers plenty of resources to help you relax and recharge after a long day of studying.

The Boston College Graduate School of Social Work uses several social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to promote social and professional networking, and to highlight GSSW news and events. You can also check our Events page and the University Calendar for upcoming academic and social events.

The Office of Graduate Student Life provides facilities, activities, and services specifically developed, implemented, and promoted for and by graduate students. The Flynn Recreational Complex offers students a myriad of opportunities to work out and have fun outside the classroom. Check the university's wide range of offices and services to get an idea of the resources and networks available to you.

The GSSW student council, known as the Student Collective, works with a variety of GSSW student organizations to plan and sponsor student/faculty socials, colloquiums, films, graduation activities, and other special events.
