New Funds Afford Way To Recognize Junior Faculty

By: The Heights Editorial Board

David Miele was recently named as the first Sesquicentennial Challenge chair, the first of up to 10 chairs that the University is planning to establish for assistant professors. The establishment of such chairs is a rarity, as most universities reserve endowed chairs for senior, tenured faculty, and BC should continue to recognize junior faculty.

By:

I’m not saying I’m not jealous of your tan, but Henry David T would be proud of what went down last week (and Boston College should be, too). Over Spring Break, hundreds of college students were arrested for engaging in civil disobedience by cuffing themselves to the White House fence, as thousands of others cheered them on.

Reflections On Appa

By: Emma Vitale

I thought I was strong, that I could avoid it, that it wouldn’t affect me the way it has affected people in the past. But it hit me the moment I embarked on the 12-hour bus ride down to Virginia and has grown deeper every day-I’ve got the Appa high.
