Whether you listen to “Rivers and Roads” by The Head And The Heart or “Boston” by Augustana on repeat or are wrapped up in the post-graduate job search, we as seniors must ensure that we make the most out of our BC experience. As alumni often reminisce on their last year at BC being their best, here are a few tips on how to make the most out of your final year on the Heights:
“My whole life is dedicated to studying what happens with the clash between idealistic educators and the reality of politics and power,” he said. “Our society has become more and more grotesquely unequal, and that’s really bad for childhood well-being.”
In my version of the French 75—or as I call it, the Fraise 75—I decided to incorporate a sweet strawberry flavor. I used Beefeater Pink Strawberry Gin and macerated strawberries to add this spin that will leave you craving another sip. I think this cocktail is best served in a champagne flute, but feel free to modify the recipe to any style glass you like.
Perfect for a cozy evening with your friends or roommates, The Autumnal Beverage is a simple drink that two of my roommates invented, and it’s already become a room favorite. It’s autumnal, it’s refreshing, and, best of all, it’s simple and easy to make. If you’re looking to spice up your evenings this fall, look no further
While it’s only a few weeks into the new semester, we can’t help but reminisce about summertime—the nice weather, the time away from school, going home. After three long months of time away from the Heights, it can be rather difficult to return to a packed schedule and focus on schoolwork all day. So, here are a few of my tips on how to create the perfect space to focus and be productive that you can use to push through this semester.
“Everyday there were and still are tough challenges, whether that’s product market fit, fundraising, building the team, or programming,” McDermott said. “There were multiple times when we wondered if it would even work or be able to stay alive. Some of our highest highs and lowest lows have happened in the span of the same day. It’s very much how a startup works.”
“We’re constantly producing chocolate,” Addison said. “We’re roasting, we’re grinding the beans, we’re molding chocolate or packaging. So every day is a little bit different. Depending on the order, sometimes we’re doing chocolate tasting events.”
“The beauty of a backpack is that it can protect and hold things you need and care about. Which makes me think, in many ways, our backpacks are like us. What good is a backpack that doesn’t open? What good is a backpack that adds extra weight and stress? What good is a backpack that only carries itself? No matter its outward appearance, we don’t know what exists inside of them unless they open up and we find out for ourselves.”
Across the country and at BC, both abortion-rights and anti-abortion advocates are processing the Dobbs decision, which overturned the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, establishing that the U.S. Constitution does not recognize a federal right to an abortion. Although not physically together on campus, students, alumni, and professors are grappling with what this decision means for the future of abortion in the United States.
“College is a time to start over and to reinvent yourself if you want. It’s a time to be who you truly are and to make friends with people who you might not have been friends with in high school. As you enter this transition phase in your life, remember that people are shaped by their experiences.”
