Double and Triple Eagles

Double and Triple Eagles

An Eagle, in general, is a nickname for a person who graduated from Boston College High School or a Boston College school, typically as an undergraduate, or as a graduate student, including Boston College Law School. The name is derived from the school's nickname (Eagles) and mascot (Baldwin the Eagle).[1]

A person who graduated from BC High and one of the BC schools is known as a "double Eagle". A BC High alumnus who has both an undergraduate and law degree or other graduate degrees from Boston College is known as a "triple Eagle".[2]
