Thank you for believing in us.
Thank you for giving the Campus School an opportunity to continue to thrive and to grow on the Boston College campus.
Yes, you’re correct-UGBC election season is one of the most trying times to be a Boston College student. UGBC is supposed to come to us, the students, but if it doesn’t, let’s go to it. If you think that we’re better off by ignoring UGBC or isolating it as an unrepresentative voice of the students, you’re wrong.
The Campus School Volunteers would like to take this opportunity to thank Father Leahy and his administration for hearing the students, parents, faculty, and volunteers of the Campus School, and offering us the chance to not only keep it at Boston College but also strengthen it into the best program possible.
Now that BC has made the decision to keep the Campus School on campus, it’s time for us, as parents of a Campus School student, to acknowledge that decision and express our appreciation. I know we speak for all the Campus School families when we say thank you. We cannot tell you how much this means to us.
The mission of the Disability Services Office says, “that students with disabilities [will] receive support services and accommodations that permit equal access to all Boston College programs and the opportunity to realize their potential and develop effective self-advocacy skills.” I just wish they would stick to that.
The controversy surrounding previously unclear FAFSA policies touches a nerve on the Heights. Regardless of the reasons behind the oversight, which may have made the financial aid process more difficult for some students, it is a poor reflection on BC and was rightly corrected as soon as possible. The deeper questions about socio-economic diversity at BC that this incident has raised remain unresolved.
