Be You, Bravely!

Rise is a mentor program that matches small groups of women from the senior class with female faculty and staff members to challenge perceived cultural and social norms at BC that affect women's sense of self. Members of the program meet monthly over dinner to reflect on and discuss issues that face Boston College women. Mentors will share different parts of their journeys through short talks to introduce different topics, which include:

  • Navigating friendships/relationships after BC
  • Forging your own path
  • Courage to make difficult decisions 
  • Life post-college
  • Defining success
