UGBC Flipbook

To help publicize various fellowships, grants, national scholarships, and other research opportunities, the Student Assembly created a flipbook. The flipbook provides an overview of most national, local, and BC programs.  If you have any questions, please email the chair of the Academic Affairs Committee, Crystal Pu, at pume@bc.edu.

Note: the flip book is up to date as of the summer 2014; however, some contact information and due dates may have changed since then.  Please always double check with the links provided in the document. The Student Assembly will be updating the flip book this year.

Online Writing Lab - OWL

OWL is the online writing lab of the Connors Family Learning Center. Staffed by graduate and undergraduate readers trained at responding to the work of their peers both critically and constructively, the OWL provides free tutoring assistance to the Boston College community. As with in-person tutoring, our mission is to help students improve their writing at the global level, with attention to argument, organization, and effectiveness, rather than extensive grammatical and syntactical revisions.

Check out the Online Writing Lab page for hours, FAQs, and more information!

Career Center

The Career Center is focused on helping students find their path at BC and beyond. We help you think about the big questions: What brings me joy? What am I good at? What does the world need me to be? And the more immediate challenges: What should I major in? What do I need on my resume to land a summer internship? Is graduate school right for me?

Their team works with each of BC’s schools and a large network of employers, alumni, and friends to help students identify and pursue interests in the form of majors, internships, post-graduation employment, and graduate study.
