It’s been a very good year
You might notice that this issue of
looks a little different. After the incredible year
we’ve had, we figured it was time for a bit of celebration. So we put together a special commemo-
rative photo issue that looks back over the last year on campus, from freshman move-in day to
Commencement, the crowning moment of our academic year and of our students’ lives here at
We hope you enjoy the chance to flip through the pictures and see just how special the past
year has been. It was our new president’s first full year on campus and a year of amazing academ-
ic, athletic, artistic, and alumni accomplishments. You’ll find even more details in Class Notes at
their regular place at the back of the magazine.
The funny thing is that, even as we put the finishing touches on this magazine, we’re preparing
for a brand-new academic year. The dorms are being scrubbed and painted, the early birds are
moving in, there are fresh notebooks and pencils (and laptops and smartphones), and professors
and students are ready for the first week of class. We’ve got a whole crop of new faces and it’s
such a thrill to have everyone back on campus.
After this issue, we’ll return to our usual fall and spring publication, but we’re also looking for
new ways to share what’s happening on campus with you. Please let us know what kinds of sto-
ries you’d like to read about BSC. Contact me directly at
