BC Must Reevaluate Its Core Revision Process

By: The Heights Editorial Board

Last spring, Boston College brought in an outside consulting firm to help develop a plan for a new core curriculum.

By: Kimberly Crowley

I started thinking of how I had spent Valentine’s Days past and, suddenly, had a flashback to something I had not thought about since high school.
