LTE: BC Students Are Men and Women for Others… Just Not On Yik Yak

While it may be safe to say that students don’t hear these remarks expressed so openly on a day-to-day basis, Yik Yak makes apparent that the prejudices students hold lie just below the surface. Take away accountability, and BC students are willing to let the rest of the student body know exactly what they are thinking. Without a filter, to be honest, we sound like a group of bigots.

BC Evaluates Sexual Assault Resources In Light of White House Report

By: Mary Rose Fissinger

The White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault released a report on Tuesday aimed at helping colleges and universities address, respond to, and prevent sexual assault on campus. The report includes guidelines for how these institutions can identify the climate surrounding sexual violence on their campuses, employ prevention programs, ensure that victims get the support they need, and investigate crimes.


LTE: The Administration Does Care

 As an alumnus, both of this university and this newspaper, and as a current Boston College grad student who is rather proud of my alma mater, I would like to respectfully and wholeheartedly express my disagreement with the entire premise and tenor of Nate Fisher’s April 28 column, “Every Man for Himself.”
