  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

Boston College Odds and Ends: March 2, 2006

Boston College has become more popular than ever; this year, BC experienced a nearly 12-percent spike in applications, receiving a record 26,000-plus applications for the 2,250 spots in the Class of 2010. "BC is the fourth most applied-to undergraduate private institution in the United States," said Tom Keady, vice president at the office of government and community affairs.

After briefly shutting its doors to all non Massachusetts residents, BC landmark MaryAnns is now open to all again.

The award-winning Boston College Magazine has a new look.

Elements, the University's first undergraduate research journal, has published its second edition of the semester. See previous coverage from The Boston Globe.

The Black Studies Program at BC recently announced that it will be known as African and African Diaspora Studies. The program was recently taken over by Cynthia Young. See previous BC Blog coverage here.

Under the TSA's ¨Advance Passenger Information System (APIS),¨ initiative, you'll need to obtain permission from the U.S. government to travel on any commercial airliner or ship that goes to or from the United States. You won't receive your boarding pass until you are cleared by APIS. You'll also need permission to travel through the United States (e.g., if you're changing planes at a U.S. airport on a trip between two foreign countries). It doesn't matter if you're a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Everyone will need permission to enter—or leave—the United States.

Thus my thinking we are these people.
