When the COVID-19 pandemic put the world on pause for a year, it felt to me that enthusiasm for Boston College athletics reached an all-time low. Combine that with lukewarm performances in some of the major sports last year and you end up with a student body that stays for an hour and then dips after mumbling its way through “For Boston.”
Sheltering from the sudden September downpour last Saturday evening, 791 Boston College students took advantage of the newly introduced SuperFan Zone just inside Gate A of Alumni Stadium.
BC Athletics has improved the Gold Pass experience with a new app that tracks student attendance and offers bonus points. Their new “Superfan Zone” is a worthwhile attempt to enhance student spirit before games.
