LTE: BC Should Be More Transparent With Endowment

By:

As an alumnus of Boston College, this is the time of year which I am again reminded of BC’s fundraising efforts in the form of the twice weekly calls from well-meaning undergraduates who solicit donations.

BC will always remember you as a source of money.

Introduction To Cynicism

Yes, you’re correct-UGBC election season is one of the most trying times to be a Boston College student. UGBC is supposed to come to us, the students, but if it doesn’t, let’s go to it. If you think that we’re better off by ignoring UGBC or isolating it as an unrepresentative voice of the students, you’re wrong.
