BC senior Angela Jin is one of Glamour Magazine's 2017 College Women of the Year. The annual competition is a Glamour tradition that goes back six decades, its mission "to spotlight dynamos and glass-ceiling breakers at schools across the country."

Jin, a marketing major in the Carroll School, is the CEO of her own merchandise company, 1950 Collective. She was honored alongside her friend and co-founder Nishiki Maredia, a student at The University of Texas at Austin.

The entrepreneurs are committed to paying their success forward: this month, for every purchase, 1950 Collective will donate a t-shirt to a homeless person in need through Project Downtown National. Past beneficiaries include the Polaris Project, the NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), and organizations aiding the Flint water crisis and Syrian refugees.

Congratulations, Angela!

"My name is Maggie, and #becauseofadonor I was able to go to college."

We are proud and grateful to have Maggie as part of our BC community. Now twenty years old, she received her first double lung transplant at four years old and her second at seven years old.

The Pediatric Transplant Center at Boston Children's Hospital is celebrating Donate Life Month by highlighting transplant recipients and the amazing milestones they've achieved. Watch this clip on Maggie's story and her journey to the Heights.

Boston College’s much-anticipated recreation center will be named in honor of the Connell family, in recognition of a gift from BC Trustee Associate Margot C. Connell.

Construction of the 244,000 square-foot, four-story facility, which will replace the Flynn Recreation Complex, is underway at the former site of Edmond’s Hall. It will include a state-of-the-art fitness center, jogging track, natatorium with lap and instructional pools, four wood-floor basketball courts, three tennis courts, two multi-activity courts and multi-purpose rooms for spin, yoga and fitness classes, among other amenities. The building will open in the summer of 2019.

Ever to Excel, a week-long summer experience for high school students, takes place at BC during August and is an initiative of the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies.
Thanks to a +Boston College institute program, young women and men are now able to gain valuable exposure to Jesuit spirituality and education, even before starting the college application process.

Ever to Excel, a week-long summer experience for high school students, takes place at BC during August and is an initiative of the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies. The program was made possible by a grant from the Lilly Endowment​, Inc., and during its inaugural year in 2016, one hundred students from 18 states and 59 high schools participated.

The program is designed to give exposure to the Catholic spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola through prayer, reflection, keynote speakers, and small group conversation. Students also get the chance to explore the city, as well as the Boston College campus.

If you know a young person who would be interested in applying, learn more about the program here: http://bit.ly/2nBlJl3
