I don't know how many of you saw the commencement exercises today on TV and I don't want to get into any of the controversies in this forum around it but there was one man who spoke who floored me.
The President of Notre Dame.
His intro for the POTUS was fantastic and made me really excited to be part of that community.
Going to pick an apartment this Thursday. Need to buy more Irish gear.
i didn't see the commencement exercises, but it does make me sad that so many people protested.
Unfortunately its things like this that make me think twice about ND as my school of choice but I guess it doesn't matter much at this point.
Did you listen to both Presidents speeches. If you listen to the pres of ND you're hesitations will lessen.
I feel like alot of the noise was made outside of the community. Sure there was some within, but that was better tempered noise and more respectful and therefore a lot less fun to cover. That kind of dissent btw, should always be encouraged....which the school did. By allowing the protest to be held in one of the spiritual centers of campus.
When I look at how ND handled this, I was very impressed.
