Kilachand Student Events
Kilachand Co-Curricular Events
During their time at Kilachand, students engage in various co-curricular events that provide them with the opportunity to interact with committed, stimulating, and accomplished intellectuals, artists, and professionals. Co-curricular events engage students in the broader implications of the Kilachand curriculum and academic community and provide insight into the backstory of scientific, artistic, technological, and political activities.
All Kilachand students are required to attend two Co-Curricular Events each semester, even during semesters they are not enrolled in Kilachand coursework. Students will check in at each event for attendance credit, and attendees who attend a majority of each event will receive an email confirming their co-curricular credit.
The monthly Kilachand Teas are a central part of life at the College. The Teas are opportunities for Kilachand students, faculty, and staff to come together for refreshments, informal conversation, and much-needed relaxation.
Personal & Professional Development Event Series
This series provides students with an opportunity to discuss self-care, good study habits, and work-life balance. Events might also help students write resumes and job applications or prepare for interviews. While Peer Mentors are required to attend a number of Personal & Professional Development events each semester, we welcome and encourage all Kilachand students to attend and build important skills to take with them after college.
Kilachand Film Series
In the Kilachand Film Series, faculty and staff invite students to screen their favorite films in Kilachand Commons. We welcome students to stay after the film for refreshments and conversation.
Circles: A Community Empowerment Space
Hosted at Kilachand Hall, the Circle series is an empowerment space for Boston University students and community members. Each Circle is dedicated to sharing our individual experiences with success, struggle, and difference within the BU ecosystem as members of our distinct communities. Defined as a meditative and constructive space, we aim to engage safe(r) and affirming spaces for thoughtful reflection & conversation.
Chocolate Chats with Professor Preston
Professor Preston’s weekly open office hours are called “Chocolate Chats” because they will always feature several flavors of chocolate (one of the great joys of the world) to share as we talk. Please stop by to introduce yourself, bring ideas or concerns about Kilachand, or suggest a topic of intellectual, personal, or ethical concern.
All events are listed on the Kilachand Honors College calendar.
