The Eagle Walk down the Higgins stairs

The Eagle Walk down the Higgins stairs

Sep 9, 2013

We have audaciously claimed that our goal is to provide the absolute greatest game-day experience in the ACC! Sounds impressive, but what does that really mean? At Boston College, our vision is to make your time on our campus memorable and meaningful, with you not wanting it to end! While we do not control every aspect of your game day, we do control our attitude, and our expectation is that you experience the most enthusiastic, informed and engaged hosts possible.

Your experience should start with the ease and convenience of our new ticket ordering system, to the way we thank you for attending as you exit the stadium. The Boston College game experience must have the most energized and genuine ushers, parking attendants, police, staff, ticket-takers and concessioners, all striving to serve you. We want you to notice the little, creative initiatives such as our new hospitality tent, our student-athletes greeting you, the Kickoff Club, and the team's `Eagle Walk' down the Higgins stairs to Alumni Stadium against the majestic backdrop of Gasson Hall. We hope you notice the increase in student attendance through our new `Gold Pass' venture, and the myriad new ways we showcase our students, from the National Anthem to the final play. You will notice that we have fully engaged Boston College's tremendous history by bringing back Homecoming and the live eagle mascot, as well as fireworks at night games. We want you to notice that we listen to you and want to improve each game through feedback from our end-of-season surveys and Town Hall meetings, as well as our new ticket office `Personal Shopper' initiative. Finally, we hope you notice a team that will play with the heart, tenacity, effort and pride that will make all of us proud to be Eagles.

While much is changing, we are not even close to where we are going, and we look forward to creating history--to accomplish what has never been done before! Thank you for supporting our student-athletes through your attendance. Our student-athletes compete against some of the greatest amateur athletes in the world in very public venues, while competing against some of the greatest minds in the world in the classroom. Your support ensures that the next generation of Jesuit-educated leaders will make the world better than it is today.
