Learning to Serve (LTS)Learning to Serve is primarily a second semester service and mentoring program for freshman led by a council of upperclassmen. Small groups of freshman, each led by one or two council members, spend 4-5 hours a week volunteering in the Boston community. Student involvement at placements ranges from tutoring at local schools to participating in organized activities at Boys and Girls Clubs or assisting in local homeless shelters. Bi-weekly, the small groups have bi-weekly reflections to discuss their service experiences, as well as Boston College freshman issues in general.

Mentoring Leadership Program (MLP): The Mentoring Leadership Program (MLP) is a leadership program of over 50 freshmen created to continue the process of fostering leadership skills. This is achieved through leadership workshops, a retreat, a series of community service activities, and most importantly with the pairing of the members of the program with a member of the Undergraduate Government of Boston College. The goal of the program is to give a better insight into the student government of Boston College and prepare the members to assume leadership roles in UGBC and other aspects of campus, as well as to create well-rounded leaders through service and skills workshops.

Freshman Senate Elections

The Senate is the legislative branch of the UGBC. It is the only organization at Boston College whose members are all democratically elected by the student body. Each class year votes in five representatives among their peers to serve one-year terms as Senate members. From these 20 elected Senate members, two are elected by the Senate to serve as President and Vice President of the Senate. The power of the Senate lies in its wide breadth and scope. From legislation policy-making, and debate, to programming, fiscal oversight, and outreach, the Senate represents the student voice in its work within the UGBC. Information sessions for those interested in running for Senate will take place in the middle of September.
