Summer 2016 Parent Newsletter

Dear Boston College Parents:

Fall semester is a few weeks away and our campus is humming with activity in advance of our students’ arrival. As always, Parent Update aims to keep you informed about what’s going on around campus, and this issue features a roundup of dates to remember—from move-in day to Parents' Weekend. It also highlights some September events your student won’t want to miss, including the September 13 Fall Career and Internship Fair—a fall tradition and one of our largest career events of the year. We highlight the fair in this issue—and we hope to see your son or daughter there.

With all good wishes to you and your family for a restful and safe summer.

Ever to excel,

Barbara Jones, Ph.D., Vice President for Student Affairs
