To All Veterans and other Military-Connected Individuals,

Welcome to the Boston College Veterans & Military-Connected Community. I want to invite you to view our website for information about who we are, what we have to offer, and what resources are available to help you progress and make the most of your time at Boston College. Our Jesuit, Catholic foundation will allow you to explore the formation of your social, educational, and spiritual life. It is with this philosophy in mind that we have compiled veteran voices, office contacts, and various sections of information together in one place to help you navigate your educational journey here at BC.  

If I can be of any support, help, or assistance for you, please do not hesitate to reach out.
