CHESTNUT HILL, MA — Isabelle Richards, daughter of Jon and Laura Richards of Wilmington MA, received academic honors at Boston College by making the University’s Dean’s List for the Fall 2018 semester.
A sophomore at Boston College, Richards is majoring in Economics and minoring in Theatre and Marketing in the University’s Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences.
An avid performer, she is a choreographer for the school’s tap dance team, BC On Tap, and this semester she played the role of Lydia Bennett in the BC Theater Department’s production ofPride and Prejudice. Richards also works at the campus bookstore.
Founded by the Society of Jesus in 1863, Boston College is one of the largest Catholic universities in the United States, with an enrollment of approximately 14,500 undergraduate and graduate students drawn from all 50 states and approximately 90 countries. Its faculty of eminent scholars is dedicated to teaching, both at the undergraduate level and in its nationally-noted graduate programs in education, law, management, nursing and social work.
Though it has grown in size, stature and diversity, Boston College remains focused on its founding Jesuit mission to offer students a transforming educational experience: to help them develop both their intellect and their character and to encourage them to lead lives of faith, integrity and service to others.
