Whether or not you are ready for it, when September arrives, it is goodbye summer, hello school. The long, lazy days of summer fade fast and you are wise to quickly embrace the new season of cool classes and crisp fall days. But a new season doesn’t mean a no-fun season.
In fact, at Catholic Studies, we are all about embracing new seasons, in style. Sometimes that means prolonging the joys of the old seasons. So, on a steamy 90 degree day in mid-September, under a hot summer sun, Catholic Studies faculty, staff, students, friends, and family gathered together to officially welcome the new semester with a backyard BBQ. The Sitzmann Hall patio overflowed with burgers and brats, conversation and croquet, ladder golf and laughter, and of course, ice cream. Old friends were reunited and new friends were made. With a healthy dose of summer air, barbeque, and ice cream, the rich life of Catholic Studies once again landed full force at UST.
There is something going on at that big brick house across the street. Can you smell it?
