Beginning on Friday, BC Athletics’s antiquated four primary Twitter accounts will now each have a fresh, new handle.
The spirit within the BC community for athletics is admirable, scarily impressive, and it is one thing I hope for in the arts at BC. The arts community consists of talented and creative individuals who move tirelessly, going through the motions without celebrating each other properly. While athletics are deeply rooted in BC’s culture, the arts consist of pockets of talented individuals, disconnected and hopefully yearning for the BC community to rally behind their achievements as well.
While April 6th is commemorated nationally as Student-Athlete Day, BC Athletics has planned a week of events to show appreciation for its student-athletes’ commitment to the University’s mission.
The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee spoke in support of the Boston College Athletic Department’s reasoning behind voting down cost of attendance measure.
With new autonomy from the NCAA, the ACC is likely to allow colleges to offer scholarships to athletes that cover the full cost of attendance. Should that be the case, BC should extend that to all full-scholarship athletes.
