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

Arteta: We’ll be ready for City

Posted on by

first_imgMidfielder Mikel Arteta cannot understand Arsenal’s hectic schedule – but maintains the players will be out to make a “big statement” with victory at Manchester City in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off. “The mood will be fine, but the recovery time is very tight,” said the Spaniard. “I don’t understand why we play Sunday afternoon, then in Naples on Wednesday, getting back to London at four o’clock in the morning (on Thursday) and then we are going to play again on Saturday morning in Manchester. “However, there is not much we can do, so we just have to prepare well and be ready for it because they will be ready for us as they rested several players for their European game on Tuesday night. “However, there can be no excuses, we have to be ready, we want to win there and have to be prepared. “We know it can be a big statement if we get a good result there, so that is what we want.” Arsenal needed only a point against Napoli to be sure of top spot in Group F and with it seeding for the knockout stage. However, after their loss at the Stadio San Paulo – where midfielder Arteta was sent off in the second half – coupled with a late winner for Dortmund in Marseille, Wenger’s men are now likely to face one of Real Madrid, Paris St Germain, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid or Barcelona when the draw is made on Monday in Nyon, Switzerland. Arteta, though, feels Arsenal will present testing opposition for any of the seeded sides. Arsene Wenger’s squad have little recovery time following their midweek Champions League 2-0 defeat away to Napoli as they try to get themselves up for the challenge which awaits at the Etihad Stadium. Arteta, though, is confident the squad will be ready as they look to extend their five-point lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League before then tackling another of their title rivals when Chelsea are at the Emirates Stadium on December 23. “You are looking at the top teams who have won their group, so it is tough, but let’s see what happens,” he said. “I am sure, though, that they will not be happy to play against us as well. “On our day, we have shown that we can compete with any team in Europe, but you are making it tougher for yourself (by finishing second). “However, if someone had said before that you are going to be through, we would be happy with that, but with the position we were in, we wanted to finish first. “Now we know we will face some really difficult opposition in the next round so it is disappointing to lose the game, but at least we are through and can take some positives because it was a really tough group.” Arteta labelled his sending off at the Stadio Sao Paulo – where he was shown two yellow cards in the second half by Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai – as a “joke”. He said: “With the second one, he is on the floor before I got there, so I am very disappointed. “They made 20 fouls in the first half, and then I made two in the whole game. “I thought it was very harsh and unfair.” England forward Theo Walcott could be in contention to start against City, while full-back Bacary Sagna may also be fit following his hamstring problem. German forward Lukas Podolski, meanwhile, stayed in London this week to step up his rehabilitation after a torn hamstring sidelined him since the second leg of the Champions League qualifier against Fenerbahce in late August.

Football: Big Ten’s return to the gridiron

Posted on by

first_imgSince Aug. 11, the fateful day when the Big Ten decided to cancel all fall sports, there has been a massive outcry of displeasure from fans, parents, coaches and players. There was a lot of controversy surrounding Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren’s decision to cancel fall sports. Since that day, there have been petitions, protests at the Big Ten’s headquarters and marches led by teams on campus.It seems as if these acts have finally caught the attention of the Big Ten, as the conference is rumored to have finalized a plan to begin playing football Oct. 17. Football: The origins of Wisconsin’s most popular traditionsBack when Saturdays were filled with Badgeralls and miniature earthquakes produced by thousands of students participating in Wisconsin’s famous“Jump Around” tradition, Read…Over the last few days,  a point of emphasis for the Big Ten Conference has been unity. UW Chancellor Rebecca Blank believes that the conference must make this decision together. “We’re continuing to look at those proposals. I’m not going to say anything more about it at this point,” Blank said in a Sept. 14 Madison.com article. “I will say we’re all going to move together in the Big Ten. We’re all going to play or not if we possibly can. This isn’t going to be a school by school thing.” During the initial vote back in August, Blank was one of the representatives who voted “no” to the plans for a season. Blank’s approval carries more weight considering the recent spike of COVID-19 cases in Madison. Football: Teams for Badger fans to root for in 2020Though Wisconsin’s football team is not taking the field this weekend, there are still a lot of exciting teams who Read…The recent surge in cases has led to a full quarantine in the two biggest dorms on campus. Blank ratifying the plans for a football season not only means she believes the protocols for football are solid but also believes the measures put into place on campus are safe and effective. It is important to note there has been no official announcement by the Big Ten, Blank, Wisconsin Athletic Director Barry Alvarez or any other person connected to the conference or the university.Breaking down Wisconsin football’s wonky conference-only scheduleThe announcement of the Big Ten Conference to keep all fall sports competitions strictly conference-only made waves throughout the college Read…Badger fans should be optimistic that football is returning this fall. Even if it isn’t in the normal capacity, just seeing the Badgers on the field at Camp Randall is a step in the right direction.Expect an official announcement from Warren later this week outlining the conference’s plans for a football season. As of right now, there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the fall sports season. But as plans are finalized, The Badger Herald will have a full report on the Big Ten’s return to football.last_img read more
