CADIGAN ALUMNI CENTER — The Boston College Class of 2019 will receive a second commencement ceremony this Spring, according to a statement issued by the Boston College Alumni Association.
Members of the Class of the 2019 were overjoyed to hear the news, with many noting that their time on the Heights “felt like it wasn’t enough.”
“I just feel like our time at BC came to an end so quickly, and there were so many more things I wanted to do my senior year,” said Josh Layden (MCAS ’19). “I mean, I was just so busy all year having a blast at Mod parties, going to MA’s, hanging out in sizable groups of nine or more, and enjoying all the perks that come with senior year. This second commencement is a great opportunity for all of us to get back on campus together, and make the most of the weekend.”
The news comes as a surprise to many, specifically the Class of 2021, who has yet to be informed whether it will be receiving a commencement ceremony of its own.
“This is just baffling,” said David Carmen (CSOM ’21). “A second commencement? Really? It’s already April and we’re still in the dark about our own commencement. I simply cannot make any sense of this.”
None of the 2,238 members of the Class of 2020 responded to the Classic’s requests for comment.
At press time, the Class of 2018 was seen lobbying the University for a second Senior Week.
