Facing outward toward Commonwealth Avenue, a crowd of protesters, including BC students and Jesuits, covered the lawn of St. Ignatius Church on Sunday afternoon.
“When [people] feel like they can’t do the things they usually do to use their minds or to bring them joy, that’s always tough to hear and reminds me why this whole effort is going to be really important to them and to the rest of the world.”
“I think that [these experiences are] very important for a person who’s going to serve in a role of student government—it obviously can’t be someone who loves Boston College, because if you really, really love Boston College, and think that everything is perfect, there’s going to be no more room for improvement.”
“I was thinking, ‘Oh man,’ you know, I don’t know if I want to teach or if I want to keep acting,” Jorgensen said. “But for me, I’ve always been very impatient in the sense of, I couldn’t stand the idea that I had to wait for someone to pick me to make art.”
“I never actually dreamed of being a professor or anything, it [was] just kind of, that was the trail I was on and things kind of kept going well—so I use the analogy of just adjusting my sails to the wind that’s blowing,” Christianson said.
“I think that—well not ‘I think that’—I know that I want it more than the other candidates just because BC is so close to my heart and it’s always been really close to my heart,” Jackson said.
“I had friends of all different backgrounds, all different walks of life, and I just felt so committed to the students, to find ways to bring people together wherever I was, [to] solve problems together and have fun together,” said Warren.
David Cotton netted a goal and an assist, and Jack McBain and Patrick Giles both logged their first collegiate points in the Eagles’ three-goal win over Vermont. BC has now beaten the Catamounts five-straight times.
