The BC Bucket List

As you’re finally getting settled in to your class schedule and refamiliarizing yourself with Boston College, you might be finding that there are several things – not academic – that you want to accomplish before the end of the year. If you’re a freshman especially, you might be unaware of the many opportunities (clandestine or not… cough cough) that BC life has to offer. Come senior year, you’ll want to have taken full advantage of life on the Heights, so we’ve provided you with a bucket list of some of the most essential things you’ll want to have accomplished in your four years here. Feel free to add your own plans to the list – what are some things you won’t leave BC without doing?
