But can it be fixed?
...the Gentlemen write on their dry erase boards. Here’s something that I saw this last semester and saved it knowing one day it would come in handy. Yes, like breaking news that is broken, the cat is out of the bag with the Gentlemen Monthly… we’re in summer schedule, meaning we’re posting every other day. Why? Because everyone needs a summer!

While we often think of this day as the official start of summer, Memorial Day is a day for remembering those men and women who died while serving our country's armed forces. So, while we go about our holiday, let us pause, remembering those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation and giving our thanks.

Yes, there's plenty of pollen
...from Notre Dame. Here's a photo of the Sorin statue on the south end of God Quad with beautiful spring tulips and the Dome in the background. Once again, a gorgeous day at Notre Dame. Enjoy your Sunday wherever you may be!

Always worth a look...
...twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Now, regardless of where you are and whatever the time may be, you have the ability to take in an unique view of campus from the Main Building. To take a gander, click HERE. On the Dome camera, St. Ed said, "I wonder when St. Ed's camera will be installed." Great question.

A true Sted's scholar...
...of St. Edward's Hall. Chris Lattimer, Steds senior and architecture major, has been busy studying the architectural history of Notre Dame's oldest residence hall. Spending time at both University Archives and Bond Hall, Lattimer conducted research that culminated in not only an informative presentation but also a beautiful watercolor picture of St. Ed's over the years. On his research, Lattimer said, "Over the past semester, I have looked into the architectural history of St. Edward's Hall. This watercolor painting shows St. Ed's at four different stages throughout it's history. Also, in my research, I ran across this quote from a trusted scholarly source: 'Those boys who came from St. Edward's Hall were easily superior to the young men who had prepared themselves in other schools.' Some things never change..." Indeed, trusted scholarly source...indeed.
In the near future, Lattimer's watercolor will be framed and placed in the Gregorian Mural Room.
