Saint Mary’s students celebrate Senior Week

Posted on by

first_imgIn the week leading up to Commencement, seniors had the opportunity to participate in different activities to celebrate the traditions and sisterhood fostered at Saint Mary’s.The week is a time for students to have one more chance to spend time together as a class, senior class president CoCo Craig said.“It’s time for memories,” Craig said.According to Craig, the week began with a senior formal Sunday, followed by the Alumnae-Senior Champagne Brunch, yoga and scavenger hunt Monday.Senior class vice president Lindsay Rzepecki said the Class of 2016 participation in the Class Gift Campaign — in which each class tries to achieve 100 percent participation in raising money for Saint Mary’s — will be revealed, and the class’s gift will be presented to College President Carol Ann Mooney on Monday.Domerfest 2.0 and Babetostal were held on Tuesday, and the class took a trip Wednesday to Chicago for a Cubs baseball game at Wrigley Field.The main events of the week took place Thursday, Craig said, when students painted handprints in the underground tunnel that connects Le Mans Hall and the Saint Mary’s Student Center and participated in the Saint Mary’s tradition of Opening of the Circle. Additionally, they received their letters from the Letter Writing Project, had a party on the island in Lake Marian and had their final walk down the Avenue.“The Opening of the Circle is a tradition where the president of the class reads a script that basically prepares to send us off, but reminds us we are always welcome to come home,” Craig said. “The Letter Writing Project is a genius idea the Class of 2015 started. Friends, faculty and family write letters to students about the positive impact they have contributed.”The Opening of the Circle will be a time of reflection for the graduates, Rzepecki said.“Opening of the Circle will surely be a sentimental moment for all of us graduating seniors, as we participated in a very similar ceremony [Closing of the Circle] on our first day at Saint Mary’s,” she said. “We will reflect in prayer and join hands with our classmates.”Rzepecki said the week aimed to make memories for students to “carry with us as we move past the comfort of Saint Mary’s.”“Each memory, person, hardship and celebration has made our own personal Saint Mary’s story,” she said. “These unique and precious gifts are something we will not be able to relive, but they will live on. This is the opportunity to celebrate those memories with just us, and only us — the Class of 2016. It’s a time of celebration, and we certainly deserve it.”Senior Isabella Gagnon said in an email she was excited to spend her final days at Saint Mary’s with her classmates.“Senior Week has really allowed me to hang out with girls that I may not usually hang out with, that aren’t in the same major or clubs that I am,” Gagnon said. “It’s also an extra week that we get to pretend we aren’t about to be real adults. We can just … bond with our fellow Belles all week without the stress of finals.”Gagnon said she is looking forward to the Senior Letter Writing Project, as well as other events during the week.“I am excited for taking our final walk down the Avenue,” she said. “I’m pretty sure this is the part where I will start crying uncontrollably. … I want to get as much out of my Saint Mary’s experience as possible. I think it’s important to go to yoga classes and handprint paining to really do that. I’m not doing every Senior Week event, but I will make the best out of the ones I do go to.”Tags: Commencement 2016, saint mary’s, Senior Weeklast_img read more

Countdown to Camp: With Dungey’s propensity to get hurt, who are the No. 2 and No. 3 options in the pocket?

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ UPDATED: July 31, 2017 at 1:58 p.m.Syracuse football’s training camp begins July 30. Every day leading up to camp, The Daily Orange’s football beat writers will take a look at some of the upcoming season’s most pressing storylines, players and position battles. Read more on the Countdown to Camp here.You’ve seen Zack Mahoney play quarterback before.For the last few years, whether with Terrel Hunt or Eric Dungey, the Orange has at some point in the season needed to summon from the sideline a new signal-caller for at least a somewhat sizable portion of the season. Mahoney has thrown 117 and 135 passes, respectively, in the last two seasons while Dungey missed time. Whether he can remain on the field this season is among the team’s biggest questions.Mahoney, a 6-foot-2, 217-pound senior, has appeared in some of Syracuse’s biggest games in the past two years. There he was with three touchdowns against Louisiana State in 2015 and with seven total touchdowns against Pittsburgh in last season’s last week. He’s proved capable enough to hang onto the backup job for now at least.  AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDaily Orange File PhotoIf Dungey is forced to miss time, it would likely be Mahoney filling in again — unless the coaching staff decides to give its big-time prospect Tommy DeVito a go.DeVito is, after Mahoney, one of only two quarterbacks currently on scholarship with redshirt freshman Rex Culpepper. Though, redshirt sophomore Clayton Welch will reportedly receive a scholarship soon. While past success with Dino Babers’ run-pass options and experience clearly places Mahoney ahead of the other two, the line between Culpepper and DeVito is blurrier.Courtesy of Tommy DeVitoNeither has thrown a collegiate pass, and though Culpepper theoretically has a better understanding of Babers’ offense from helping run the scout team last season, it makes sense that DeVito would have an advantage over Culpepper for playing time. That’s because Babers recruited DeVito, an Under Armour All-American and Elite 11 Finalist, as his guy. Syracuse could redshirt DeVito, but the staff also needs to balance the QB of the future’s desire to play after he turned down other competitive, Power 5 offers to sign with the Orange.If DeVito redshirts and the Orange needs a quarterback and neither Dungey nor Mahoney are available, expect Culpepper. If DeVito doesn’t redshirt, expect to see DeVito’s new era underway early. Comments Published on July 30, 2017 at 8:39 am Contact Sam: sjfortie@syr.edu | @Sam4TRlast_img read more
