Thumbs Up Aquaphor:  As the Boston College plague continues to rampage through dorms across campus one hero rises above: Aquaphor. After three consecutive weeks of runny noses, students have reached for tissues, toilet paper, and in a real pinch, paper towels, all of which result in dry skin and Rudolph-red noses. While Vaseline, Neosporin, and…

Thumbs Up Taking time for yourself: Boston College tends to attract type-A students, and this mentality seeps into the rest of the school’s culture. While this is one of the reasons BC is such a great school, it also means that there’s always something happening and there’s a pressure to be constantly in motion. As…

Thumbs Up Jazz in the Background: Midterm weeks pitch a wicked curveball to the Spotify algorithm. Unfortunately, when it’s crunch time, “INDUSTRY BABY” simply won’t cut it. Many claim that classical music is the way to go, but it cannot replicate the improvisation of gentle and upbeat instrumentals that jazz captures.  Dressing up for Halloween:…

Thumbs Up  Marathon Monday: What’s better than a long weekend? A long weekend with a marathon hitched on the end! Maramon, as it’s affectionately referred to on Herrd, is the only day Boston College students will gleefully arise at 6 a.m. It’s a crossover between Mardi Gras and a giant block party, with the added…

Thumbs Up  Air Frying Cinnamon Apples: As the trees slowly change color on Boston College’s campus, it is clear that fall is dawning. One way to celebrate is to dice up some apples, sprinkle them with a little bit of cinnamon and brown sugar, and throw them in an air fryer for about five to…

Thumbs Up Family Weekend:   Family Weekend was a wholesome display of just how much energy Boston College students, parents, and alumni bring to campus on game day. Family Weekend felt like a warm hug from the entire campus, and it proved that the undergraduate population can sit through an entire football game, plus overtime.  Sympathizing…

Thumbs Up  BENCH Amazon Hub Lockers are yet another begrudging testament to Amazon’s genius, and will most likely be featured as the next case study in the Digital Technologies: Strategies and Use course (for any freshmen in the Carroll School of Management looking for current events ideas). Whether it’s an emergency purchase of Advil, a…

Thumbs Up The birds outside Lower The discarded food crumbs cluttering the tables outside of Lower attract a wholesome crowd of birds who also visit Lower to dine. Most of the time they keep their distance from dining students, but a few inch closer for crumbs of a blueberry muffin or leftover everything bagel seeds….
