HIGGINS HALL — Senior neuroscience major Emma McArthur reportedly threw in the towel on Tuesday evening and decided to drop out of Boston College just two semesters away from completing her degree.

The night of the breakdown, McArthur was sitting in her Psychophysiology Of Stress class. Classmates on the scene said that with 15 minutes left of class, the stressed-out senior stood up and began frantically packing her things. 

When the professor stopped the lecture to ask her what was going on, McArthur appeared not to hear until she arrived at the door to the classroom, at which point she dramatically turned to face the class and threw her hands up in the air.

“I am DONE with this Neuroscience bullshit!” said the pissed-off pre-med. “My B.S. is BS and I’m still mad I didn’t join the circus.”

The rest of the class sat in stunned silence according to unnamed but credible sources, secretly hoping that this would increase their chances of getting into medical school. 

This outburst came as a shock to the Psychology Department, which recently added a neuroscience major in hopes of attracting more research-focused students to Boston College.

When asked for comment, McArthur said, “Research schmesearch! Research THIS!” She then proceeded to accost our reporter in a way that is not appropriate to discuss in respectable circles.

At press time, McArthur was seen burning her recently purchased textbooks at the construction site of the Schiller Institute for Integrated Sciences.
