LTE: BC Should Stand Up For Children In Judicial Process

By:

After graduation I joined the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and I remain in the program today in my second year. After deciding to stay with JVC for a second year, I moved to Washington, D.C., where I work now for an organization called The Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth. The Campaign works on behalf some of the most “othered” individuals of our society. We are the national campaign working to end the practice of sentencing children to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

LTE: BC Students For Justice In Palestine Supports Northeastern University Counterpart

By:

On March 7, the administration of Northeastern University responded to student activists from Students for Justice in Palestine distributing mock eviction notices in dormitories by suspending the student organization and charged two members of the organization with “endangering behavior.” This reaction is embarrassing on the part of Northeastern University.

LTE: BCSSH shortens name to SSH

By:

In case a five-letter acronym is too long and unwieldy to use casually in conversation, the student organization formerly known as BCSSH has changed its name to Students for Sexual Health (SSH) as we move forward in promoting sexual health awareness and resources on Boston College’s campus and beyond.

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. Again, I am reminded that since I graduated in the early ’80s I have not given one nickel to BC.

LTE: BC Students Protest At The White House

By:

LTE: Divestment At A Catholic University

By:

A word of praise for the students who make up the Boston College Fossil Free organization. Sixteen members of BCFF devoted their Spring Break to lobbying in Washington for a more serious approach to this fundamental threat, six of them strenuously enough to get arrested for upsetting politicians.

LTE: Op-Ed Misunderstands BC Fossil Free And Its Goals

Matthew Alonsozana’s Feb. 5 op-ed betrays its supposed intent for “a more sustainable BC.” We in BC Fossil Free (BCFF) have the same goal, but we understand that such actions will do little to address the deepening climate crisis jeopardizing our future. As we correct some of Alonsozana’s mischaracterizations, we hope you will come to understand why young people on campus have been pushing for divestment and, more generally, fighting for climate justice.

LTE: BC Sees Alums As Income Stream

By:

It’s approaching two years since I graduated from Boston College, a fact with which I have finally come to terms. You will always carry your memories of BC, but BC will march forward without even noticing that you are gone. However, there is one exception. BC will always remember you as a source of money.
