Everything about beautiful Boston College screams competition. Whether applying to join a service trip, rooting for Eagle’s hockey at Conte Forum or just trying to get into the school, BC students thrive on motivation and drive. You don’t meet many students who lack involvement in clubs, nor do you see a whole lot of partying on weeknights unless it’s Thirsty Thursday. Hardcore studying and getting a good workout in at the Plex take precedence. But worry not; you’ll get your Rubinoff fix Thursday-Saturday in sweaty Mods or during Shea Field tailgates on game days. Studies bear only a little more importance than involvement in clubs such as club sports, a capella groups and, most of all, weekly service groups and school break service trips. Prepare to be considered an athlete if you wear sweatpants to class, and prepare to swim in a sea of Sperry’s.
