- Laying Out on the Quad
- With the first glimpse of spring sun, campus seemed to come alive. Students broke out their dusty spikeball kits, footballs, and picnic blankets and spread out across any and all green spaces on campus to make the most of the sun while it lasted. Campus seemed to be healing, so to speak, as students (much paler than they were when they arrived on campus in August) emerged from their dorm-caves to greet the sun. Schoolwork didn’t seem as hard when done on the rapidly greening grass, iced drink in hand, and sunglasses resting securely on the nose.
- One Less Hour
- No longer do students have to make the trudge home from class at the end of the day in the dark. Now, with the hour lost from daylight saving time, the sun is still securely in the sky at the end of the school day, making for a slightly less dark and depressing trek back to the dorm that doesn’t make you want to curl up in a ball and neglect your homework by scrolling on Herrd. The days are only getting longer, and summer is most certainly on its way.
- Housing Stress
- Pulling together the perfect group for your housing next year is already stressful without adding more uncertainties into the mix. The tension in dining halls is palpable as new groups meet and cling to each other for safety during this year’s housing Hunger Games. Everyone wants to hope they will be the one percent who gets their top choice housing pick (that eight-man in Walsh, that four-man in 2K, and,of course, the coveted Mods), but it’s inevitable that some will be disappointed by the outcome of their selection process.
- Turn Down the Heater
- As the weather (hopefully) gets warmer and warmer, the one thing that won’t change is the temperatures in all of BC’s buildings. If you were sweating a little while you basked in the sun this week, nothing could have compared to how you were sweating inside with the heaters almost matching the temperature outside. Despite no longer needing those floor-length down jackets, the inside of all buildings will still be heated as if we’re in the dead of winter (probably until we leave for summer break).
