Students after the barbeque

This blog last left off after Sunday night’s Travelers’ Mass, which was followed by an orientation meeting in St. Cecilia Hall. The day’s hectic pace at last seemed to slow down, as prefects and students introduced themselves to one another, amid much laughter. After the meeting, the men and women retired to their respective residence halls for yet another meeting — this one on the finer points of dorm living — and then chaplains came by (Fr. Paul in the women’s residence hall and Fr. Sebastian in the men’s) for the nightly consecration. The night concluded with ice cream and socializing in anticipation of a big day on Monday.

Monday began with breakfast in St. Joseph Commons, after which students made their way over to St. Cecilia Hall for the Academic Orientation. Summer Program Director Brian Dragoo discussed what students could expect in their classes — including the dress code and addressing each other formally — and how to best prepare for class (approach the text with no expectations and a willingness to learn). He also gave students a foretaste of some of the profound questions they would consider over the next two weeks, including questions of justice, conscience, and responsibility for our actions. Then it was time for morning Mass  and the day’s first class — Plato’s Euthyphro!
