Student Tour Guide Also Walks Backwards To Class
GASSON QUAD — A number of Boston College students reported feelings of bewilderment Monday morning when Student Admission Program tour guide Devon Lin (MCAS ‘19) was seen walking backwards to class.
“It was crazy,” said eyewitness sophomore Stewart Dent. “He traversed the entire campus without even looking behind him. It was clear he had done this many times before.”
Lin says his legs have grown accustomed to walking backwards, and that he sometimes does it even when he’s not giving tours because it’s easier for him now.
“It’s sort of like a language,” he explained. “Sure, walking forward might be my native tongue, but I’ve become fluent in backwards.”
At press time, Lin was seen lifting 500 pounds on the calf machine at the Plex.
