Students awoke and moved quickly to breakfast Wednesday morning, and then returned to the chalkboards for the second day of Euclidean demonstrations. Overall the proofs went well, and the classes were lively. Following Euclid, Mass, and lunch, students went to their first class on Boethius’ Consolation of Philosophy.
The afternoon was quiet — a few swam in the campus ponds, a few played volleyball, and many, we think, took well-deserved naps. After dinner, study, and Rosary, Open Mic Night took place in St. Joseph Commons. There were many spectacular performances, from “Ave Maria” to several guitar numbers written and performed by one of the students. Finally, at the end of the evening, prefect Sean O’Neal grabbed a guitar and announced that he would play “one of the greatest oldies,” the chorus of which went, “Go to bed! Go to bed! Go to bed!” The students and prefects then walked back to their residence halls, where they feasted on soft pretzels before retiring for the night.
