BC falls back on empty words

As a 1972 alumnus of Boston College, I was heartened to walk the campus this week and view the splendid addition of Stokes Hall and the renovation underway of St. Mary’s Hall. Despite the rough winter, the campus looks terrific. I was disheartened, however, by the article in the student newspaper The Heights detailing the conflict between Boston College Students for Sexual Health and the BC administration.

In 2013, for a college administration to fall back upon words such as “the mission of Boston College as a Catholic and Jesuit university” is the type of nonsense that today’s young people see right through for the outdated and hypocritical blather that it is (“BC tells students to stop dispensing condoms,” Page A1, March 27).
