Highs and Lows of Second Semester Senior Year: #IS6621 X-dition

They say that all good things must come to an end, and on this Friday there are certainly a lot of good things coming to an end: the end of the 2015 spring semester of classes (including ISYS6621), the end of my fourth year at Boston College, and the end of my entire undergraduate career. […]

In fact, I think it’s a very convenient way to quickly sign up or provide my information without going through the tedious process of creating a username or password that fits the website’s specifications. The reason for […]
