The Typical Week for a BCE Student

Below is the schedule for what an ordinary week for a BCE student might look like outside of the classroom.

Monday: Service opportunity.

Tuesday: On-campus activity (activities from past summers have included pick-up games of soccer or Frisbee, student panels on transitioning to college, faculty panels on what to consider when choosing a school, and more!).

Wednesday: Service opportunity.

Thursday: Weekly presentation by a BC faculty member.

Friday: College visit.

Saturday: Excursion into Boston or the surrounding area (past trips have included whale-watching, a Boston scavenger hunt, a beach trip, and more!).

College tours will be scheduled for each Friday. The schedule will be posted in June once we are able to arrange visits with each university.  Visits are tentatively planned for Harvard University, Brown University, Tufts University, Northeastern University, and Boston University.
