At Monday afternoon’s classes, students discussed Plato’s Euthyphro, from which they worked to construct a definition of piety and identify its general qualities. Next came the afternoon recreation period, which included all kinds of sports — volleyball, soccer, ultimate Frisbee, and basketball — despite the thick humidity, a rarity in Southern California. A few women wisely escaped the heat, however, at an art session that prefect Zoe Appleby led in the ladies’ residence hall:

After dinner in St. Joseph Commons, students met for study hall in St. Bernardine of Siena Library, where they prepared for Tuesday’s discussions of the pre-Socratic philosophers and Sophocles’ Antigone. Then it was time for the nightly Rosary in Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel, followed by cards, board games, impromptu musical performances, iced mochas, and Italian sodas in the coffee shop, as well as a ping-pong tournament in the game room. After curfew, students returned to the their residence halls for a late-night snack of cheese and crackers, the resumption of the previous night’s foosball rivalries, and great conversations about the day’s classes.
