Tuesday afternoon’s recreation session was much like Monday’s, with a few additions: A small group of students painted with watercolors in the nearby “Painter’s Shack,” others took a swim in the campus ponds, and about two dozen more auditioned for the upcoming Shakespeare Revue. “You could tell they had a lot of experience with acting and had very nuanced and emphatic deliveries,” says prefect Joe Daly. “They did quite well.” The Revue, which will take place Friday night, will include a number of scenes and soliloquies, largely but not exclusively Shakespearean, performed entirely by Summer Program students.

A dinner of pulled-pork sandwiches followed the recreation period, after which came study hall. Students brought their Bibles and were busy reading the first 25 chapters of Genesis in preparation for today’s classes. Afterward, they went to the Chapel for the nightly Rosary, and then to St. Cecilia Hall for Coffee Shop. There, the College’s head chaplain, Rev. Paul Raftery, O.P., fielded questions that students had about Abraham from their Genesis readings.

Coffees shop ended early, however, so that students could return to their residence halls for dorm parties. In Saints Peter and Paul Hall, the men began their fete with a fierce whiffle-ball dodgeball match, after which they recovered around the fire pit, with guitars and singing, plus chips, guacamole, and ice cream. In St. Monica Hall, the women played a few rounds of ice-breakers, then also enjoyed chips and ice cream, accompanied by good conversation. “We had a lot of questions about the curriculum, applications, and the life of the College,” reports prefect Andrea Florez.

Then came the nightly consecration and lights out. On schedule for Wednesday: Genesis, Dr. Nieto’s annual talk about art and beauty, and the first dance class!
