Puerto Rico Chapter Map Location Marker

The Puerto Rico Chapter was formally established in 2014 and is home to just under 1,000 alumni, parents, and friends.

This mighty group of Eagles is a tight-knit and welcoming community, who frequently gathers for everything from networking, to professional development, to game watches and more!

The presence of Eagles in Puerto Rico has been notable since the 80’s; when Clifford Myatt Sr. organized gatherings at the Swiss Chalet. His son,  Clifford Myatt Jr. ‘75, then followed by organizing game watches at Shannan's Pub. Additionally, the relentless recruitment efforts of Hector Viña ‘80 has been key to the successful enrollment of hundreds of outstanding Eagles!

Puerto Rico Chapter Leader Glori Alvarez

Glori Alvarez '88

Lives in: Guaynabo, Puerto Rico

Major: Communications

Occupation: Marketing

Favorite BC Memory: Wow, there are so many awesome memories! My top one has to be when I ran the 2016 Boston Marathon. My daughter, Sarah ‘16, and her friends were all cheering me on at mile 21. To top it off, they were all wearing “We Run with Glori” shirts which they sold to raise funds for Dana Farber. 

Why did you get involved in your local chapter?: We may leave Chestnut Hill, but BC will never leave us. When the opportunity arose in 2014 to help re-organize the BCPR Chapter, I, alongside a group of enthusiastic fellow Eagles, hosted events consistently and made it a point to continue the sense of community that our dear BC instilled in us. The Boston College Puerto Rico Chapter seeks to nurture the strong connection between Boston College and our local alumni, students, parents and friends. Reach out & join us, WeAreBC!!!
