“I’m Definitely The Mom Of The Group,” Reports Woman Giving Birth In Walsh Hallway
WALSH HALL — It was reported late Saturday night that Boston College sophomore, Mary Beaufor-Sax, went into labor in a corridor of Walsh Hall. Before she left for school, many of her small-town peers from Nazareth, Pa., were skeptical of what this single, college-aged woman would be able to accomplish in her four years at Boston College.
Nevertheless, Beaufor-Sax said that giving birth to this child would be her “crowning achievement,” spoken just as the baby’s head had begun to crown.
While the father of the child was not present at the baby’s birth, Beaufort-Sax’s best friend Joe Carpenter (CSOM ’21) remained with her. Reportedly perturbed at Boston College’s lack of suitable locations to deliver a baby on campus, Carpenter said that he and Beaufor-Sax had been turned away from both Vanderslice Hall and 2150 Commonwealth Ave. Forced to spend the night in Walsh, the pair was later greeted by three friends, wealthy international students from East Asia. These 4.0 GPA students gave Beaufor-Sax gifts of Marlborough Golds, Axe Body Spray, and myrrh.
When asked on Sunday to reflect on her new role as a mother, Beaufor-Sax said, “Looking back, it almost felt like fate. I’m always helping out my drunk friends after a night out, and now I’ve given birth in a Walsh hallway.”
At press time, Beaufor-Sax was heard saying, “I’m definitely the mom of the group now!”
