Overheard: At the Plex

The leaves are changing, pumpkin spice is in the air, and we are all drowning in comfy sweaters; fall is officially here. The recent rainy weather has sent a flock of Boston College students to the warm comfort of the Plex. This only means one thing: it’s bulking season. Boys will become men; beards will be grown; muscles will be swole. Obviously, it’s a great time to share our favorite quotes overheard at the Plex.

“Dude, I’m going to the bathroom. Just watch my stuff so no one steals my protein.”

“I always come to the Plex on my rest day. I like to just eat my New England Classic and look at everyone working out and think: ‘you earned this’.”


So whether you go to the Plex to eat your lunch, lift weights, or socialize, don’t let a few rainy days stop you. The worst-case scenario is you burn a few calories on the walk over and get to hear some truly memorable quotes.
