“The process is so frustrating, it’s so draining and frankly it’s horrible,” they said. “…it’s so overwhelming because you have some people tell you, ‘yes, report, speak up’… and then other people telling you, ‘yeah, this is gonna take like months or years potentially to get anywhere with it.’”

“I was living in Brazil, and people were saying, ‘Oh, but my dream is running the Boston Marathon,’” Samary said. “So I had the goal of one time in my life running the Boston Marathon. The Boston Marathon is like the Holy Grail of everyone that runs.”

“I think being a BC student is probably the best way to run the Boston Marathon,” Craycraft said. “There’s so many people yelling out on the course, you know, cheering for BC or for the Eagles, and I couldn’t be more grateful or more proud to wear the BC jersey while running the course. It’s super special.”

“I think right now at BC, we’re at some sort of a crossroads coming out of the pandemic and moving into the University’s future plans for what they want to do with this institution,” Benjamin said. “I’ve expressed my concerns about different things, and they’ve been met with positive feedback from [the] administration. So I’m really hoping to continue those relationships and continue to advocate for students at the highest level because it’s one thing to have a seat at the table, it’s another thing to be heard at the table. And that’s really what I’m all about this year.”
