Students Thrilled To Know Leahy Cares, Even Happier To Know He’s Alive And Well
BOSTON COLLEGE — The Heights broke news earlier this evening that President Fr. William P. Leahy, S.J., signed a statement supporting Boston College’s commitment to protecting its undocumented students by holding up President Obama’s executive order, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Because DACA may be in danger of being repealed under the Trump administration, the majority of Boston College students were reportedly thrilled to see that their president, who in the past has been nothing but silent on major issues and current events, cared about safeguarding his undocumented students and standing up against Trump’s aggressively nationalist agenda.
But, more than just excited that the often-silent Leahy had taken an action to stand with his students, students were reportedly even more filled with joy to know that Fr. Leahy is alive, well, and able to read and sign pieces of paper. “I’m a senior, and I have never seen Fr. Leahy in the flesh,” explained Felicity McDonald (CSOM ’17). “Apparently he fundraises a lot and is a very busy man or whatever, but I still had my doubts that he was actually a real person with a hand that could use a pen to write a signature on a paper. This is great news! At least for today, I am proud to call him my president, and to call him a president that definitely exists! But, now that I know he’s alive and aware that students go to school on this campus, I hope he responds to one or two more things. But, you know, one step at a time.”
At press time, Fr. Leahy’s approval rating had spiked to an all-time high, which sources claimed he was planning on celebrating by ordering some fresh sod for his personal collection.
