(uplifting piano music) – I think we have a great cohort, It’s so diverse. There’s a lot of
personalities in our room. I think that just creates so many fun, dynamic conversations. – My cohort’s the best cohort. – Great group of people, they’re awesome. I love everyone, our
personalities are great. – I love my cohort, I like the discussions that we have in this class. I think that you can learn a
lot about someone on a retreat, which we did, but you can
learn more about someone about what they have to say. – I like that they deal
with different perspectives. In the cohort you didn’t
have to agree all the time and we were totally fine with that, and by, not necessarily
calling each other out, but letting each other know that there are better ways
to approach something. – We never had really a dull conversation in our past few years together and it’s exciting to know that
everyone has their own niche and all of us are committed
to different things, but I think in the end all of us just want to see the world become a better place. – I think the connections are pretty real that we make, so that’s
something that I’ve enjoyed, is like having these
people I know on campus, who I don’t just know
superficial things about them, I know their social justice passions and all these kind of things that I think are just a really cool
depth to note of a person. – I got to know them on
an intellectual level, and you don’t find that a lot at BC. You find clubs and programs, you’re getting to know people socially, and I did get that, but I got to see inside my
cohort’s mind which is nice. That sounds so creepy. – Yeah it’s just, we have
different perspectives, and we helped each
other find the best ways to convey our message
without excluding anybody. Being conscious of other people. – When we went on our
retreats Sophomore year, we all had not yet had to declare where we were gonna study abroad. I was still in between going
to Barcelona or Buenos Aires, and really could not decide. Talking with my cohort and hearing what they wanted to get out of abroad really helped me decide that
I needed to go to Buenos Aires because it was going to give me the most out of the experience that I wanted, so I’m really thankful for
them and those conversations. They totally helped me
get to that point of doing what felt like the bigger risk, but I think had a bigger reward for me. – In our room we have
future heads of state, diplomats, researchers, state politicians in the U.S, so it’s a really exciting time and I’m excited to see
what the future brings. – They’re awesome, I mean,
I seriously have learned so much from the people in my cohort. I truly believe that they’re
some of the most intelligent and cool human beings and
so I’m really grateful to have walked with them
through this process. – And it’s been great,
love seeing you guys, and I hope the food is really good. I’ll see you all in life
somewhere, somehow, whenever. (laughing)
– [Camerawoman] Aww that’s so sweet!
