COL Dan Arkins '81, Co-Chair of BCVAN and Brigadier General (ret.) Jack Hammond at the 15th Annual Veterans Remembrance Ceremony.
The Boston College Veterans Alumni Network (BCVAN) was established in 2011 to honor the University’s servicemen and women and to strengthen the bonds among alumni, veterans, and the greater BC community.
BCVAN is dedicated to:
Promoting, highlighting, and sponsoring University news and events for veterans and their families and friends, including the annual Veterans Remembrance Mass and Ceremony and the annual Reunion Weekend Veterans’ Reception
Serving as a resource to all Boston College ROTC programs, including BC students who are currently participating and alumni who previously enrolled in the USMC PLC, NROTC, and AFROTC programs at Boston University
Providing mentoring and networking opportunities to current students and alumni who are transitioning from military to civilian life
Supporting members of the BC community who are currently deployed or serving on active duty, especially those stationed overseas
All Boston College servicemen and women are automatically enrolled as members of BCVAN and will receive University communications concerning the latest news and upcoming events for veterans, their families, and friends.
