“With enough preparation, they should be able eat like grown-ups by the time they make it to the break room at Goldman Sachs.” 7% Tuition Increase Used to Give CSOM Students Special Snacks

FULTON HALL— According to documents published by Boston College’s Office of Tuition and Fees, this year’s controversial 7% tuition increase will be used to fund a nutrition incentive program for students in the Carroll School of Management. 

The program, called Nutrition and Snacks During Academic Quests (NASDAQ), will provide business students with daily nourishment in between classes. It features a number of highly requested items including animal crackers, Scooby-Doo themed fruit snacks, and applesauce, which is served with a portable silver spoon.

“I truly feel as though this incredible program will prepare our students for brighter futures in the business world,” said CSOM Dean Andy Boynton. “With enough preparation, they should be able eat like grown-ups by the time they make it to the break room at Goldman Sachs.”

Boynton was able to produce evidence of NASDAQ’s success by pulling an unwrapped, melted chocolate bar out of his pocket in the middle of the interview. 

Beyond this, NASDAQ has been very well received by members of the CSOM community, with many students saying they hope the bullish trend continues. 

“I like when they have ants on a log,” said Ethan Daly (CSOM ‘24). “Ants on a log are yummy and make my tummy feel better after Portico.”

When asked to comment, a spokesperson for NASDAQ asserted that the group hopes to provide a safe space for students to stand near each other and eat during these unprecedented times.
