After students wrapped up their discussion of the pre-Socratic philosophers on Tuesday afternoon, most descended onto the athletic fields to prepare for this afternoon’s highly anticipated volleyball tournament. Others played basketball or tennis, and several cooled off in the campus ponds:

At dinner, head women’s prefect Sarah Dufresne (’14) led the entire group in singing “Happy Birthday” to student Connor P., whom she presented with a chocolate cake. Then the students were off to study hall, where they read the first 10 chapters of Genesis in preparation for this morning’s class, or got a head start on some of next week’s readings, particularly those by Boethius and Kierkegaard. Afterward was the nightly Rosary in Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel, after which Head Chaplain Rev. Paul Raftery, O.P., gave a blessing to all present.

For evening recreation, the volleyball diehards returned to the courts for nighttime play, while other students found their way to the Coffee Shop for iced drinks. At curfew, all returned to their residence hall, where the prefects hosted parties. In Sts. Peter and Paul Hall, the men feasted on donuts and engaged in a fierce whiffle-dodgeball tournament, from which Team Rossi emerged triumphant.  They then stormed the campus flagpole and sang a rousing rendition of the National Anthem. Meanwhile, in St. Monica’s, the women enjoyed hummus and pitas, plus music and dancing, as well as some ice-breakers.

At last, the fun came to an end, and it was time for consecration and lights out.
