Wednesday Diary and Slideshow: Genesis, Volleyball & Dancing
July 26,
2012

Wednesday dawned bright and early at the College, with the few clouds and last bits of fog burning off the hills during breakfast time. From 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. the students joined together for a discussion of the first 10 chapters of Genesis, which recount the story of Creation and the Fall.   Mass was offered in the College chapel at 11:30, followed by lunch in St. Joseph Commons.

After lunch the students headed down to the athletic field for a volleyball tournament (there were no afternoon classes), which culminated in a game between the winning student teams (led by prefects Christina Kinney and Dan Selmeczy) and the tutor team. The students won that hard-fought match, and celebrated heartily.

After enjoying a chicken and tri-tip barbeque for dinner, the students were off to the library to study. They met up again later in the evening for a dance practice, led by the incredibly talented Mr. Selmeczy. After a few halting first steps, most everyone was settled in, moving well, and very much enjoying Dan’s engaging lesson in swing dancing, which lasted until 10:30 p.m. After a snack of homemade pretzels and mustard, everyone settled in for a well-deserved night’s rest.
