One of the best things about this campus is how busy it is. On any given night, there are 5 dozen different options for what to do.
Tuesday, for example, the director and actors from The Boondock Saints came to campus to talk to students and offer a free sneak preview of the coming sequel. While the movie is not the most polite or family-friendly , in the words of one of my friends, "That movie seriously makes me want to be Irish Catholic." This being the home of the Fighting Irish Catholics, the tickets sold out in minutes, of course.
Thursday night, tonight, the PLS department is putting on a student talent show. Last year's show was so much fun. Acts ranged from poetry recitals to students performing their own plays to a group of senior guys performing an old NSYNC song (to wild applause). I'm sure tonight's show will live up to that legacy.
This weekend is the Center for Ethics and Culture's tenth annual fall conference. This year's theme is "The Summons of Freedom: Virtue, Sacrifice and the Common Good." I'm writing a conference preview for The Observer and I have really enjoyed all the interviews I've done. Everyone involved in the conference is so enthusiastic, so hopeful and really just glowing with excitement. It sounds like it will be a wonderful experience. If you'll be on campus this weekend, stop by the conference!
