- Boston College was founded by Jesuits in September of 1864 on Harrison Avenue in Boston's South End with 3 teachers and 22 students.
- In its first seven decades, BC served the city's primarily Irish working class by providing an undergraduate program emphasizing theology and philosophy, Greek and Latin classics, English and modern languages.
- In the first decade of the 20th Century, the college moved to nearby Brookline's Chestnut Hill neighborhood on what had been the Lawrence Farm.
- There they constructed what was termed a 'central recitation hall' which was then named for president Thomas I. Gasson, S.J., who had been the driving force behind the relocation.
- Gasson Hall remains one of the iconic fixtures of Boston College's scenic urban campus and an enduring testament to a vision that set a once small working class institution on the road to becoming one of America's great Jesuit universities.
