The Craziest Season of All

Hello, prospective students!

I know it's very late into the semester to be making my first blog appearance, but hey, better late than never, right?

My name is Catalina Tresky, and I'm a junior, majoring in communication and minoring in French.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday! Now that we're all back from a short and well-deserved, I must say, break, it's time to hit the books for the craziest season of all: finals season.

For those of you wondering what it's like around here at this time of year, I'm not going to lie: you can feel the stress in the air. We all have something due at least every other day, and the fact that we have to study for exams the week before Christmas is, simply put, not cute. But the great thing about BC during finals is the amount of de-stressors we have around us. RAs put together great "de-stressing" events, and the Plex puts on a great event called Inflatables Night. Yep, it's exactly what it sounds like - a gym filled with inflatables to channel your inner child during finals.

Every morning, our dining halls give us free coffee to keep us moving through our sleep-deprived days filled with studying, writing, and more studying. And the dining halls keep the love coming during Late Night when they put out breakfast foods to keep us fueled during the late hours of the night/the early hours of the morning.

So, even though finals are definitely not the most fun part about going to college, the BC community definitely eases the blow of least thrilling part of the year.

On another note, I hope everything is going well in your college process! Feel free to comment on this post with any further questions about BC student life.

Until next time!
