“I was kind of a rebel and didn’t put BC on my list of schools. Since it’s where both of my parents went, I didn’t consider it very much. I was trying new and different things, but when I came here I just fell in love with the campus.
“On orientation day, you could choose two departments to go to and Professor Michael Barry was teaching the Finance Department section. And I realized, wow, these guys are so smart and funny, and they can somehow tie in enthusiasm to things that seem arcane.
“I’ll want my kids to come to BC some day. But I’m probably going to try to have the same approach as my parents: don’t say anything, wait until they’re interested, and keep introducing them—not pushing them but introducing them—to BC. And BC will make them fall in love with it.”
