Cheer, Cheer for

Donnelly and Fagan: Not a law firm, just ND Cheerleaders

... old Notre Dame! We know how enthusiastic the Gentlemen of St. Edward’s Hall can be for all things Notre Dame. However, two freshman, messers Charlie Donnelly and Conal Fagan went one step further and sealed a place on the cheerleading team of the Fighting Irish. Two intense days of final practices culminated in their tryouts. Suffice it to say, but the tryout was filled with anxiety and nerves and, you guessed it, cheer. Despite the fatigued muscles and tired minds, they rose above the challenge as the Gentlemen do and succeeded in this endeavor!

After making the team, Fagan said, “Never did I think that I would be doing cheerleading at college. It’s a bit of a difference from the usual arena of the soccer field but I am excited about the journey that lies ahead for us all. I can assure you, throwing people in the air is much easier than it looks, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am delighted that I convinced Charlie to join me.” 

BUT IT’S NOT OVER! The resident Irishman, Fagan, will be going one step further when he attempts to become THE ND Leprechaun. No challenge is too great for this Stedsman, and “Lepreconal” has a certain ring to it.

Because of you...

A Fr. Ralph meme created especially for ND Day

...Stedsmen, moms and dads, brothers and sisters, grand and godparents, friends, people of goodwill, Saturday’s squirrels, pets… and anyone else who we are forgetting...THANK YOU for your support this ND Day.

It is because you that we are once again the #1 residence hall this ND Day, and if you are counting, this is the FIFTH year in a row as #1! 

On St. Ed’s showing this ND Day, I don’t think that words, no matter how witty or eloquent they might be, can capture how grateful we all are. It is truly humbling, and though it might sound trite, all we can say is, “Thank you.”

Indeed, many, many thanks... and all of our love!

Your Sunday Picture...


Gotcha! President Edwards interviewed by Steds very own Matt Turk

... from Notre Dame. Today marks the start of ND Day, and Steds is at it again, reaching far and wide asking all Stedsmen current and past, all friends of St. Ed's, and all persons- even animals- of goodwill, to vote for St. Ed's. Yes, the Stedsmen are calling and texting, evening "meme-ing," everyone they can to ensure that this year's campaign is successful and that the life of Notre Dame's oldest and most storied residence hall carries on. Personally directing campaign efforts at the Steds' ND Day Operations Center in Dahnke Ballroom at the Duncan Student Center, President Cole Edwards said, "We had a great time at the ND Day telethon today making the final ND Day push and securing our dominant position as the number one vote earners. Of course, we are concerned about the competition, especially Russian influence and Cambridge Analytica, but we're confident that we can hold them off and shut them."

On the tenacity and resolve of the Gentlemen to be the number one residence once again, Danny Felton, Steds sophomore and Steds gym user, said, “I refuse to get off this treadmill until Steds repeats as the highest point earner of ND Day. Your move, donors!”

In other news...

Despite high spirits, the Steds B Team for soccer, Big Cats, went down against Keough, forfeiting the game. On the loss, Matt Lupo, Steds junior, said, "The pride fell to a combination of factors, including poor conditioning, lack of possession, and not having enough players to start the game."

What he wants for ND Day...


Fr. Sorin is standing with Steds.


ND Day is so important to St. Ed’s that everyone, and I mean everyone, is weighing in on the matter, from why they should help Notre Dame’s oldest and most storied residence hall to how they would like to see the funds dispersed. Even the Founder, Fr. Sorin, is weighing by providing a clear "sign" to give and vote for St. Edward's through the mural of him in the second floor study lounge, the Gregorian. You can't argue with that!

We know where Fr. Sorin stands, but here's how you can stand with him and his beloved St. Edward's...
