Oh, What a Wonderful World: COVID-19 and War

It is unbelievable to think that we, as college students, are living in a historic time. In the lapse of just two years, we have lived through a pandemic and are now watching war unfold abroad. Past realities we used to read about in our history textbooks in high school, have left the textbooks and…

Rest, Young Grasshopper

There is nothing more unsatisfying than waking up from a nap and still feeling unrested. As someone who took an unsavory nap today, I can say with all due passion and emphasis that it is one of the most aggravating experiences known to man.

The Myth of the Modern Martyr

This change would help the University prioritize students’ mental health and honor the Jesuit, Catholic commitment to cura personalis, or the care of the whole person. Students at BC are…

Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down: Week Of March 21

Thumbs Up: Laying Out on the Quad With the first glimpse of spring sun, campus seemed to come alive. Students broke out their dusty spikeball kits, footballs, and picnic blankets and spread out across any and all green spaces on campus to make the most of the sun while it lasted.

A Prescription for Sound

I am sure we are all too familiar with the major glitches that affected Spotify a week or two ago. Everyone was kicked out of their accounts, and there were plenty of comical tweets begging for Spotify to let us back in to keep listening to our coveted music. But in that brief period, if…
