Students demonstrate propisitions

At the conclusion of Tuesday’s classes, students met up in Gould Hall, where prefect Dan Selmeczy led the third dance class in preparation for Friday’s farewell gala. As soon as the session ended, the group headed to the athletic field for a prefects vs. students soccer match. The prefects won 5-2 in a fun yet hard-fought battle.

For dinner the students were treated to pork and potatoes, after which they made their way to Dolben Library, where Admissions Director Jon Daly gave a presentation on how (and why!) students can apply to Thomas Aquinas College. At the ensuing study hall, students prepared for their next class on Boethius before, once again, venturing off to the classrooms to practice their Euclidean propositions with the prefects.

After Rosary in the temporary chapel came the highlight of the evening, “Theology on Float.” Prefects served root-beer floats to hungry students, who sat back and listened as Fr. Markey answered their anonymous, previously submitted questions about the Faith and the Church. Topics included the Blessed Sacrament, the role of women in the Mass, how to witness to friends who may be trapped in sin, achieving holiness, and the problem of suffering. The discussions on these and other subjects extended past curfew in the residence halls, all the way up until nightly consecration and lights out.

Due to technical difficulties, we don’t have photos to share from most of yesterday’s events, although we will try to post some later. In the meantime, though, enjoy these images of students practicing their propositions, taken at the last two nights’ study halls:
