GASSON QUAD — Admissions tour season is here at Boston College. Prospective students have the opportunity to sit in Devlin’s finest waiting room, gawk at the gothic architecture, and see some real life students as they make their way through the campus. This week, a certain Monday tour group got a special treat as they were walking alongside Gasson Hall, the pride and joy of Chestnut Hill.

High school senior, Iwana Goheare, told The Classic, “We were staring up at the building with the big tall thing, you know, with the clock, yes, that one, and suddenly, a brisk air came over the whole group. My hair flew in my face. It felt like my breath had been drawn out of my body. The hairs on the back of my neck stood straight. We all turned to look and there he was.”

Members of the tour group reported that Richie Walker (MCAS ’23) caught all of their attention as he walked by them. Their tour guide kept speaking, but all of their gazes were glued to this BC Adonis and his powerful stride. Once he passed the oggly spectators, they all cheered for him, some even clad with cowbells and megaphones.

Goheare continued, “I’ve never really been to a college campus before. It was so incredible to see a real life college student, living so independently. He had such a power to him that maybe you can only gain when you leave home and spread your wings. Wow. I can’t stop thinking about it.”

When asked about his display of confidence and maturity, Walker said, “I just saw this group of kids, so young and so naive, and so unaware of what’s ahead of them. I thought I should show them what you can make of yourself if you really apply yourself. So, I strapped myself with perfect posture and an I-have-to-be-somewhere walk.”

At press time, Walker was seen frolicking around campus, going nowhere in particular, in hopes of passing another tour.
