Welcome to
the Heights

Parents Weekend is a beloved University tradition—a chance for Boston College families to gather and celebrate what makes the BC student experience unlike any other.

September 27–29, 2019

Join faculty and administrators as they share their perspectives on student life inside and outside the classroom. Stop by open houses across campus where you will hear from your student’s dean as well as the Office of Student Affairs, the Academic Advising Center, and other departments.
