Our Mission

The First Year Experience seeks to introduce new undergraduates, both freshmen and transfer students, to the many opportunities available at Boston College. Our unique programs, including Orientation, 48hours, Compass Mentoring, and Conversations in the First Year, are designed to help all students engage more fully with the University and challenge themselves to realize their full potential.
