Get to Know Her a Little Better!

One thing most excited about for senior year: To start writing my thesis, just kidding…pretty much everything. I can’t wait for the best year of my life at my favorite place in the world!

Fun fact: I’m addicted to Cheez-Its. (Side note: the obsession is so out of hand that my roommate last year actually bought me a Cheez-it pillow for my birthday).

Advice to freshmen: It sounds cliché to say that there’s something for everyone on this campus, but with 230 clubs and organizations there really is (Did I mention that I’m a tour guide?). But honestly, find something YOU love and go do it. These fours years fly by, believe me. Make sure you leave BC with no regrets!

Shannon is currently in her junior year at BC.  She is majoring in Elementary Education and English, hoping to one day teach in an urban school.  Originally from Hopkinton, MA, one of Shannon's favorite things to do is tell people that her hometown is the start of the Boston Marathon - it's claim to fame!  In her free time, you can find Shannon cuddled up somewhere with her adorable giraffe-spotted mug.
