Hi, I’m the Answer Wall! I’ve been perched in the O’Neill Library lobby at Boston College since February 2017, except for a year in 2020 when I went fully online. Ask me a question by posting a post-it on me in O’Neill Library. I’ll answer within a day on weekdays. I snooze on the weekends, because answering questions is hard work!
I just graduated! Thank you so much to all of the BC Staff – especially the librarians who helped me w/research :) ❤️
🎉🎓🎉🎓🎉CONGRATULATIONS!!! 🎉🎓🎉🎓🎉 And I will send your words of thanks on to our library staff, who are as excited about research as I am and love to know they’ve been a part of your research success. ❤️
Hi Wall. I found a friend in NJ and he doesn’t stop texting me. What should I do if he in love with me?
If you don’t want so many texts, perhaps say a new friendship is certainly exciting, but your own style is to text less often. If the texts make you happy, then it’s easy: reciprocate!
You have my boyfriend!
Enjoy London! Call, text, etc. your boyfriend with tales of your exciting adventures. We will try to keep him amused while you are away.

怎么还有一门(考试)啊! [Why is there still an exam?]
It seems endless, doesn’t it, all the exams? You’ll finish, I promise! Best of luck!

Love is notorious for having lousy timing. My condolences, and best wishes for you both. https://bit.ly/bc-htl

Many virtual Wall hugs for you 🤗🤗🤗

Bye! Have a great summer!
How do you get printed text on a post-it note? [confused face thinking hmmmmmm]
10,000 monkeys with typewriters. OR a special template that crafty librarians use for printing on post-its.

Is there anywhere on campus where I can check out some fun non-academic books to read?
Immediately to my right (your left while reading this) is the Pop Collection, full of current popular books, both fiction and nonfiction. Also, if you know of an author whose work you like, look them up in Library Search (library.bc.edu). We probably have something! Or ask a librarian.

That’s thinking outside the box!
I’m in love with you! ❤️
Awwwww. That makes my day. I love you, too, but as a friend because I am in a committed relationship with The Lobby Door…
Should glitter confetti litter be allowed on BC campus? (seniors, I saw you)
You know, I don’t mean to rain on anyone’s parade, but glitter is not awesome for the environment. Also it’s really really hard to clean up – and our facilities folks work so hard already! As your friendly neighborhood Wall, I suggest finding other ways to express your excitement and joy!
What’s your favorite part about BC. Least fav?
Favorite? Easy – you all! Least fav? Could be the Level 2 restrooms…
See you next Fall BC! maybe
Have a terrific summer!
Um I saw that my “purge” date is 15th of July. What does it mean? 😳
Purge dates indicate when you will be removed from the library system. That basically means you won’t be able to check out items after that date. The date depends on when you graduate and is usually a few months after graduation. If you are expecting to be at BC after that time, you should reach out to Student Services or talk to the library staff at the circulation desk, and they can definitely help!
