6 Ways to Prevent the Common Cold

By Alana Dolan
October 9, 2014 - 11:12am

As the weather gets colder, and we continue through the semester, our immune systems aren't as strong as they were when we first got to school. We are now indoors a lot more where the temperature tends to be warmer than it is outside. As more and more people start to become sick, and we find ourselves in closer proximity to them, what are the best ways to avoid getting sick? Sure, it's easy to say stay away from them but in college, that's impossible (unless you have a single and decide to become a hermit). So what CAN you do? Catch Your Zs! READ MORE

He describes his town “like crabs in a bucket,” where when “one person does well, everyone else tries to pull him or her back down.” He says that this environment motivated him to pursue his goals and chase the opportunities life has to offer, especially those offered at Boston College. When he was recruited the end of his junior year, it was “a dream come true because I found a way out.” At sixteen years old he was ready to break through the barriers of his neighborhood and reach for what is unattainable for so many that surrounded him.
