January - April 2018

An illustration of a BC hockey player

The Boston College Eagles played their first intercollegiate ice hockey game 100 years ago. The story of hockey at Boston College began in the late 19th century with an earlier version of the game known as “ice polo.” Aside from brief breaks for the Great Depression and World War II, the modern version of the game has been played by men and women at “University Heights” since 1918.

This exhibit is a sampling of materials held by the Boston College Archives, created by students and alumni, faculty and administrators, managers and marketers – Superfans!
