from the AHANA Graduate Student Association!



“AHANA” is an acronym for African-, Hispanic-, Asian-, and Native- American students at Boston College.

AGSA was formed five years ago to provide graduate students of color a forum for the exchange of ideas and perspectives as well as to establish academic and social networks across the graduate schools of BC. 

This year, we plan to continue to provide opportunities for fellowship, academic support, networking, sharing of research interests, and recruitment of more students of color into the BC community. 

Again, welcome, and please feel free to visit the AHANA GSA office at the Murray Graduate Student Center.  Definitely contact any of the officers with your questions, comments and suggestions!
