Woods College of Advancing Studies

The motto of Boston College, 'Ever to Excel,' is a commitment to our students and a tribute to our history. What allows us to excel is the expansion of our minds and hearts, 'to be more'; more than we ever thought we could be; more than the world around us could imagine. Picture yourself in our school becoming more in every area of your life. It is possible in the exciting and inspiring environment of Boston College.
James P. Burns, I.V.D., Former Dean of the Woods College of Advancing Studies
