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.
