Action Alert!

healthy alternatives

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Dec 12, 2005

Perhaps OTR has been unduly hard on Boston College, Chestnut Hill's Jesuit university. It's true that the parents of freshmen who reside on campus get hit with billed costs of $41,950, but that sum opens up possibilities not always available at other colleges, such as Healthy Alternatives Lifestyle Floors:

Boston College has established Healthy Alternatives floors for students interested in living in an environment free of alcohol, tobacco and other harmful substances. This floor also encourages the students to maintain a lifestyle that supports academic success, personal development, well being, and a sense of community. Residents will work to further define and promote healthy choices within the hall and throughout the University through a variety of programmatic methods.

Academic success, personal development, well being, and a sense of community -- what will they dream up next? If your child isn't into that scene, there are also romance language floors available.
