GPS: Navigating Student Life at Boston College
Goals. Purpose. Success.
The transition to graduate school can be tough. Spend two days with fellow first-year graduate students from across disciplines to reflect on what it means to be a graduate student.
Rooted in principles of Ignatian Spirituality, GPS is a free overnight retreat experience for first-year master’s students designed to provide a much-needed space for engagement in self-reflection and meaningful conversation about the realities of graduate school at BC.
Please contact the Office of Graduate Student Life at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about GPS.
