Get to know the Boston College schools by their shorthand.
“A key reason that Jesuit education has emphasized the liberal arts for the past 500 years is that experience has shown that they are the best preparation for leadership. Our students and alumni have a great commitment to service leadership, which emerges in large measure from extended studies of our traditions and the great works of the past.”
