Meet BCDE’s Sarah Pollard!

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at BC chapter.


Name: Sarah Pollard

Year: 2015

Hometown: Orange County, California

Major: Nursing


On Campus

What are you involved in?

I am currently the director of the Boston College Dance Ensemble. I also work as a nursing assistant on a cardiomyopathy unit at Tufts Medical Center.

When did you join DE?

I joined DE my freshman year! This is my fourth year on BCDE and my third year on the officer board.

What is your favorite part of being on the team?

Coming from California, I was looking forward to joining a club on campus that would introduce me to new people. I didn’t realize at the time that by joining DE, I was becoming a part of a family. You automatically have 30 best friends that will be a part of your life forever.   

The Show

What are you most excited about for your upcoming show?

I am beyond excited for show! We are so incredibly fortunate to have Masti and Fuego performing with us this semester. It’s going to be really exciting to watch so many different styles of dance in one amazing show!

What is the number one reason we should all go?

Not only are you going to see some amazing dancing, but also by purchasing a ticket, you are donating to the Campus School. 100% of our proceeds benefit the Campus School. $10 can go a long way in supporting the students and their families.


Fun Facts

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

I cannot stand when people drive super slowly in the fast lane. It also kills me when you get into the next lane to pass the person and then they move into that lane.

What’s your favorite meal at BC?

Baja Chicken Panini at Hillside

What advice would you give to freshmen?

I would tell them to get involved in something that they are truly passionate about. It is not about joining as many clubs as possible; it is about joining the club that you look forward to going to every day and can really dedicate yourself to.
