Dear Parents and Families,
Congratulations on your Boston College student’s upcoming graduation. As we look forward to spending this extraordinary day with you and your family, we would like to share a few Commencement-related resources to help you make the most of your time on campus.
The Boston College Commencement website, www.bc.edu/commencement, is your go-to source of information on events, accommodations, schedules, and transportation.
This year, we ha...ve also created a free Commencement mobile-optimized website at www.bc.edu/2016. It puts everything from maps to late-breaking information on ceremony locations to visitor services and graduation speaker bios at your fingertips. You can download the Commencement mobile app before you arrive on campus.
Once you are here, please take note of Commencement hosts wearing straw hats who will be positioned strategically around campus. They are here to help direct you and answer any of your questions.
Our students bring us an inestimable blessing, for which I thank you. And I look forward to celebrating their accomplishments with you at our 2016 Commencement. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the Commencement Office at 617–552–4330.
