A Stride Lead is a junior or senior leader interested in helping sophomore students "find their stride" and feel established at BC. Leads will join their small group of co-ed sophomores at four evening events, share their story during Stride Lead panels, and engage in weekly small group discussions.

Stride is a program specifically designed to help sophomores feel established at BC.

The program introduces second-year student leaders and faculty on campus through a lecture and panel series, builds social connections through regular co-ed small groups, and helps students grow as leaders through a formational retreat experience. 

The purpose of the sophomore formation program is to help students begin to ask bigger questions about who they are and who they want to be as a person. In order to be a leader, you first have to know yourself. Stride combines an academic, social, and spiritual approach to help second-year students integrate different aspects of their lives on campus.

Applications open March 1, 2023 and close March 29, 2023.
