After watching a Boston College football game, Devaun Bovell, an ABC grad and rising Junior gave us an excellent tour of the campus, classrooms, and dorms at BC while sharing his experiences in school with the boys. He was tremendously positive on how the ABC program prepared him for college and how much he enjoyed BC.Library study area at BC.
