To the recorded fanfare of “Bugler’s Dream” (the popular Olympic broadcast music), the Boston College members of the U.S. women’s Olympic hockey team returned to Kelley Rink on March 1, six days after the close of the 2014 Winter games in Sochi, Russia. The three silver medalists were introduced during a media timeout in a men’s game against Notre Dame: forward Alex Carpenter ’16, who scored four goals and had an assist in five Olympic contests; goalie Molly Schaus ’11, who shut out Switzerland; and forward Kelli Stack ’11, who scored a goal and had four assists. The trio signed autographs and posed for photos with fans in the Power Gym. Another Sochi Olympian, Team USA men’s hockey defenseman Brooks Orpik ’02, was playing a game that night with the Pittsburgh Penguins in Chicago.
Jon Rish ’94 and Andy Powers ’99 were covering the BC-Notre Dame game for Boston radio station WEEI and provided commentary.]]>

Nineteen-year-old William B. Neenan of Sioux City, Iowa, entered the Jesuit novitiate in Florissant, Missouri, on August 15, 1948. Eighteen years later, Fr. Neenan earned a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Michigan, where he stayed on to teach. A visiting professorship led to his joining the economics faculty at Boston College in 1980 and to stints as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and academic vice president, with a sideline as wedding presider. (He estimates he has officiated at the marriages of some 200 Boston College alumni.) Last fall Neenan sat down in his Heffernan House office with Ben Birnbaum, editor of Boston College Magazine, for a conversation about his life and career. Here he talks about his early years as a Jesuit.]]>
Last November 15, members of the graduating Class of 2014 signed up for their final semester of courses. Among the spring classes they filled most quickly, according to the Office of Student Services, were those taught by the individuals above. The professors were filmed in front of a greenscreen at Boston College’s Media Technology Services studio.
“Bringing UGBC down to earth” was the campaign slogan of juniors Lucas Levine and Vance Vergara as the political newcomers vied this year for the leadership of the Undergraduate Government of Boston College, squaring off against the “take-back-your-student-government” team of Nanci Fiore-Chettiar and Chris Marchese. The race attracted a record 4,332 undergraduate voters, as the presidency for the 2014-15 academic year went to junior Fiore-Chettiar, a sociology major and UGBC senator, and the vice presidency to classmate Marchese, a major in history and political science.
Campaigning commenced on February 11 and ran for nine days. On Day Two, @BC caught up with the candidates and their supporters as they canvassed the residence halls of Vanderslice and 90 St. Thomas More Road.]]>
