Six members of the Boston College Class of 2019 discuss their experience at the Heights.
- A self-described “people person,” Daniel Croteau likes to be able to eliminate unnecessary anxiety in others, whether a high school student visiting BC on a campus tour, a fellow Connell School of Nursing student making the college transition in a First-Year Nursing Seminar, or—in the near future—a family member with a loved one in the ICU. Add to that an interest in science and service and Croteau has the qualities to be a compassionate and skilled nurse. Read more about Daniel.
- Natalee Deaette, a first-generation college student, has demonstrated a tremendous passion for college access and equity during her four years at the Lynch School of Education and Human Development, best exemplified by her service with a Vermont-based, federally funded Upward Bound program, which prepares low-income, first-generation high school students for postsecondary education. Read more about Natalee.
- A native of a small farming village on the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia, Gawain Dornelly moved to Boston to pursue his higher education dreams. After earning an associate’s degree from Bunker Hill Community College, he transferred to the Woods College of Advancing Studies in 2017 and is now considering a master’s degree. Read more about Gawain.
- Annie Haws of the Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences always knew that she wanted to be a scientist, but it wasn’t until she came to BC that she was able to fully explore her interest in geology and become involved in research. Her enthusiasm for both the sciences and the humanities became one of the defining themes of her academic life at BC. Read more about Annie.
- The son of Haitian immigrants, Anthony M. Smith of the Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences grew up in a household where education was a priority. Now, believing that education can make a critical difference, Smith has made it the focus of his post-graduate journey. Read more about Anthony.
- Branick Weix was hired early in his Carroll School of Management career to travel to Costa Rica to assist researchers with the Leatherback Trust and Seeds of Change so they could use his drone aerial images in their efforts to protect nesting Leatherneck turtles. He came to BC intent on learning as much as he could about entrepreneurship and shepherded his start-up, Aryeo, from concept to an award-winning proposal to realization. Read more about Branick.
