First off, I hope all of the members of the BC community, on and off campus, stayed safe this weekend during winter storm Nemo. For the second time this year, the university shut down due to terrible weather conditions. On Friday, students stayed inside because of the dangerous wind and snowfall.
By Saturday, the worst of the storm had passed and students slowly began exploring the snow-covered campus. Students played pick-up football by Stokes Hall and sledded on the Newton and Lower Campuses. Mod residents took advantage of the snow-fall and built forts and igloos.
A big thank you to BCPD, BC Facilities, and BC Dining for working throughout the weekend.

Aside from the storm, the semester has gotten off to a great start. As a second semester senior, I have a little more flexibility with my schedule because I have finished most of my class requirements. I am taking 19th Century Art, Advanced Public Relations, Truths in Writing, and Structures of the Universe. I also work one day a week at my internship in Newton and spend Friday afternoons at a community service placement. On Sunday nights, I meet with the Appalachia Volunteers Program in preparation for spring break. Several hundred students will spend a week in the Appalachia region building homes and serving local communities.
Since it is still February, I don't want to get too nostalgic about graduation just yet. But the '100 days' dance is in a couple of weeks. The '100 days' dance is a dance for seniors in downtown Boston to mark the final countdown before graduation.
Finally, if you are free on Monday, the men's hockey team will play Northeastern in the Beanpot championship game at 7:30pm at the TD Garden. On Tuesday, the women's hockey team will also play Northeastern in the championship game at the TD Garden at 8pm. Good luck, Eagles!
