Imagining BC In 100 Years

A century ago, BC did not in anyway resemble the university we know today. Our beloved Gasson was only two years old and students couldn’t #gassongram it because Instagram was still 95 years away. If you thought no FIFA nights with the guys would suck, just imagine going to school without girls – BC didn’t become fully co-ed until ’74. With these telling details in … Continue reading Imagining BC In 100 Years

The Segway Board Boasts BC Bestseller

Our campus has recently seen an influx of the mysterious skateboard-like Segway called the IO Hawk, most notably in the hands of our football players but not limited to them exclusively. Imagine what grandparents must think of us able bodied youth using these devilish devices. I can hear my own “If we aren’t careful, the robots are going to control us one day”; all right … Continue reading The Segway Board Boasts BC Bestseller

College is a Time to Experiment.

You know that awkward interval of time between your classes that you originally scheduled with the intent of doing all your homework? Well if there are two things we have learned as second-year college students, it’s that (1) time management is a myth and (2) that time in between your classes is best used experimenting with BC Dining options or launching a new humor blog with your … Continue reading College is a Time to Experiment.

8 Reasons BC is the Whitest Place on Earth

Diversity is a crucial element to any life experience, something to be embraced, not feared. The minority students here have enriched the BC community as a whole as well as my own personal experience at the school. Recognizing the overwhelming homogeneity at our school, however, is not racism or xenophobia. To not do so would simply be a refusal to face the facts. Eight reasons why the … Continue reading 8 Reasons BC is the Whitest Place on Earth

The Tuscan Chicken: A Narrative

It is a Tuesday like any other. Except that it isn’t. Hundreds upon hundreds of Boston College students, like myself, have just moments ago conquered their 10:30am classes, somehow surviving those extra 25 minutes of tedium. It’s actually quite incredible how much longer an hour and fifteen minutes feels in contrast to the 50 minute quickie we know, love, and even crave… I quicken my … Continue reading The Tuscan Chicken: A Narrative

Res Life is Coming! Res Life is Coming!

As a heterosexual white male from a stable financial background I rarely have anything to get worked up about. I’m not saying this to boast or to devalue others; I’m saying it because it’s the truth. My dude Lil Dicky hilariously sums up my existence in his rap song “White Dude,”: With that said, I have recently been the subject of cruel and unusual punishment. … Continue reading Res Life is Coming!
