BOSTON COLLEGE: Would you travel across the country for school? Audrey did! Three Boston College students (two of whom are seniors) talk about finding connection and community on BC's campus. They share their experiences in organizations such as RHA (resident hall association), SASA (South Asian Student Association) and “For Boston” (community service). Audrey shares stories of her initial struggles during her first year after break up and how she switched majors from Spanish/Pre-med to environmental science and finally sociology. Richard talks about his ambitions to join the FBI or CIA and more. All the panelists offers thoughts on how faith and wanting to avoid a similar experience to high school factored into their final college choice.
