Mission and Goals

The Office of Student Life and Housing (OSL) encourages community building, fosters leadership development, promotes social interaction, and enriches and enhances the academic experience though a balance of challenge and support. Our office promotes student involvement on campus and provides resources to nurture success outside of the classroom.

The OSL oversees all housing initiatives, including our off-campus housing webiste which offers a number of resources for students who are looking for apartments or rooms in the Greater Boston area. We also offer an on-campus housing option through Pine Manor College for students who desire the more traditional residence hall experience.

The office works closely with our Student Government Association (SGA), who advocates for the entire BAC commmunity on behalf of the student body. Through SGA and the other BAC recognized Student Organizations on campus, the Office of Student Life helps foster social, cultural, educational, recreational, and wellness opportunities for growth.

The Office of Student Life's mission is to provide an atmosphere that fosters a visible, vibrant campus community and facilitates life-long learning through:

  • Offering co-curricular programs
  • Accounting for student activity funds
  • Managemnet of Residence Life and Housing options
  • Leadership advising for student organizations
  • Connecting students to volunteer opportunities
  • Securing and connecting students to on and off-campus resources
  • Maintaining the All Student Email, Campus Plasma Screens, and The BAC Student Life Blog as communication vehicles to facilitate awareness and participation in BAC campus life
  • Organizing annual campus traditions, including: First Fridays, Midterm Munchies, and Food for Finals.
