After enduring one of the most grueling winters in recent memory. BC Students have returned to the quad giving our campus a much needed change of pace. Frisbees flying, footballs spiraling, everyone is out and about trying to make the most of this glorious day. The smiles and energy have produced an atmosphere of pure joy. This is what college looks like. Youthful, joyful, exuberant intellectuals in a common space sharing experiences and adventures. This scene only gets better with the arrival of local pets, of course it’s national pet day. Big, small, cute, tall all sorts of lovable dogs have invaded our campus, spreading their love to anyone who will take it.
