Raven Rankine, a member of the Eagletts and CSOM ’16, commented on how the involvement of more teams could have improved the experience. “I feel like I gained more BC spirit from this, however, I did wish that more of the campus was part of the event and more people participated.”
As this is the first year of the Spirit Week Competition, many students were excited for what it could hold in the future.
“If they can see what works they can focus on those aspects going forward,” Henneberger said. “The few things they laid out were good ideas, but more student involvement would be the best way to make it successful in the future.”
“This is the guinea pig year,” Johnson said, “but hopefully the response will be good enough so that they can continue it in the next years.”
When Mackenzie Hart, A&S ’17, was asked what her initial reaction was when she heard BC was having a Spirit Week she said, “I was really excited. One of the big reasons I chose Boston College was because of the school spirit. So I am trying to embrace it.”
Joey McCarthy, CSOM ’17, reflected on the general feelings of campus during Spirit Week, leading up to the Homecoming Weekend.
“I think there is a hidden sense of enthusiasm,” he said. “You wouldn’t know how much people really get into it. We are all really excited about Homecoming Weekend and it is going to be a big deal for us here at BC.”
