  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

Boston College Ranks High, Home and Abroad

While most know about the top rankings of Boston College academic and athletic programs, BC also ranks high on recent lists of the nation's top study-abroad participants and volunteering universities.

As reported by The Heights, BC ranks 11th among its peers for producing Peace Corps volunteers. George Rutherford, a Peace Corps recruiter for the New England region, believes that Boston College's high ranking "is a testament to the type of students that go to BC and to the ideals on which the school is founded."

Since the Peace Corps' inception in 1961, over 600 BC graduates have signed on for the 27-month volunteer service commitment, working in fields such as education, health, HIV/AIDS education and prevention, information technology, business development, environment and agriculture. See the complete list of 2006 Peace Corps Top-Producers here.

Boston College also ranks #13 among a respected list of Top Study-Abroad programs. The 2005 Open Doors Report of undergraduate universities ranked BC high on their list of top doctoral/research institutions sending students to study abroad. The Open Doors report is published by the Institute of International Education, the leading not-for-profit educational and cultural exchange organization in the United States.
