Someone Stedsmen...

A Stedsman best friend: the "vator"

...have all the luck. Yes, some Stedsmen have completed their finals, and now, they're are enjoying some much needed and well deserved down time. Still, some are forgoing a break and are immediately packing and moving out. On finals being over, Joe Petrone, Steds Junior, said, "The amount relief is surprising!"

Who knew...

Hecht: Not a Canadian...just a Cinncinnatian on ice

...that St. Ed's had a curling team? I sure didn't, but I am not surprised that they are winners! With Chris Hecht "captaining" the curling squad, the Sted's team has had a very good season as Hecht has helped fellow players channel their "inner Canadian." On the first round of the playoffs, Hecht said, "We won 3-1 in thrilling fashion courtesy of a masterful snipe by fellow Stedsman Steven Brill on the last throw of the game. We advanced to the Round of 32 with the win."

It's on!

Cervantes burning the candle at both ends

Finals Week is well underway, and Stedsmen are pulling out all of the stops, redoubling their efforts, burning the midnight oil, etc., etc., etc. to make this Finals Week successful. So, all study spaces have been made quiet study spaces and hall quiet hours are in effect. Still, there is the traditional "letting off steam" every night at 10pm. On Finals Week, V, Steds Senior and RA, said, "Is there studying going on? Oh, there's plenty of studying going on!"

Thoughts from Abroad.

Taking a break from Rome: Cullen in Florence

Each semester, even during the summer, a number of Notre Dame students study abroad in locations that range from London to Santiago, from Tokyo to Paris and all points in between. Not wanting to miss out on the chance to matriculate abroad, Stedsmen have joined their fellow students in hitching a ride for a three month vacation, errrr I mean, study abroad. On studying abroad in Rome for the Spring Semester, Sean Cullen, Steds junior, said, "I've really broadened my perspective and seen a lot of amazing history here in Rome and Europe. I now have a more competitive list of places that are almost as good as Steds!”

Saturday's squirrel.

A table for one?

Today's furry friend is enjoying a quiet moment with a nut. Sitting on the Zahm picnic table this squirrel is, well, enjoying the fruits of his labors. On enjoying a quiet moment at the picnic table, this squirrel non-verbaled, "Hey, no one was using it."

ND Day continued...

Bringing ND Day Campaign 2016 to a delicious end

At the conclusion of ND Day on Monday, there was a celebratory gathering in the first floor lounge. With President Ryan giving thanks to all Gentlemen and friends of St. Edward's for making ND Day Campaign 2016 a success, the Gentlemen took a much needed break from their labors, enjoying Chick-filet-A and each other's company. On the celebratory gathering, Danny Szydlowski, Steds freshman, said, "Glee Club may have incredible musical talent and been number one overall, but we have Chick-filet-A… AND a yacht dance. I think we all know who really won Notre Dame Day." Indeed, we do Danny… indeed we do!
