All Boston College students, faculty, and staff who plan to be on campus this upcoming fall semester will be tested for COVID-19 upon arrival, according to a Thursday email from the Office of Residential Life.
To close out the semester and thank BC students for their dedication to following University COVID-19 protocols, the Undergraduate Government of BC, in partnership with BC Dining and BC Athletics, offered a series of campus-wide events, meet and greets, giveaways, and more in what they dubbed “Thank You Week.”
So, “Student organizations should not invite discriminatory speakers that ostracize members of the BC community and do not constructively participate in open debate.” I guess it’s okay to discriminate against so-called “discriminatory speakers.” Heaven forbid that we have some differing views, like Republican or conservative views, on a school campus! No! Everybody must goose-steppingly conform...
“You never know when something can be taken away from you,” Rueve said. “I think that's something that the pandemic really, really made me realize, and be thankful for every lacrosse game that I get to manage and every charity water meeting, and every opportunity to see family or call a friend.”
“Checking in people and printing their label … it's completely out of like the realm of my job responsibilities, but I think in a unique situation like COVID, everybody kind of has to roll up their sleeves and, and do whatever job needs to be done to make sure that we're all here, safe, and can be at Boston College together,” Morris said.
Some feel more motivated to get their work done so that they can spend their time outdoors, but the better weather also makes it challenging to finish the semester out strong. With this, it is important to make a change in scenery and find new study spots.
“I think one of the things I strive for is to be low-hype when it comes to the weather,” Epstein said. “There are actually very few weather days which are really life- changing, and for most people, the most severe weather doesn't happen.”
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts will lift all industry COVID-19 restrictions and capacity limits on May 29, Governor Charlie Baker announced on Monday. Gathering limits will be rescinded and all businesses can operate without restrictions, according to the Commonwealth’s website.
