Our theme this year is “Interconnectivity”. Staying connected has been a challenge we’ve all experienced throughout the pandemic. BCSers are renowned not only for our interconnection between disciplines, but also for having a strong and interconnected student body. Let’s put our minds together to build some creative solutions!
