Students reflect on activities as “Welcome Weekend” concludes

first_imgWelcome Weekend drew to a close Monday, concluding orientation activities for incoming first-year and transfer students.Junior Prathm Juneja, student government chief of staff, said he thought this year’s Welcome Weekend staff and student government volunteers did a great job of creating an “all-inclusive” environment for new students.“I think what we did best was trying to establish a welcoming, incoming connection individually to really show that student government really cares about our students,” he said. “Everyone here can be really connected and it should be an opportunity for everyone to get to know each other.”Freshman Carmen Bolivar, also a resident of Lewis Hall, said moving into her dorm helped her feel welcomed during her first few days at Notre Dame. Her older brother knew a sophomore Welcome Weekend ambassador in Lewis, who she met during the weekend.“I think just seeing her and starting to meet everyone in Lewis was super fun,” Bolivar said. “I think just having that as my first experience coming into Notre Dame really made me feel more in the family and really connected to everyone.”Freshman Carina Walton-Roberts, a resident of Lewis Hall, said her favorite event was the class photo.“I liked Domerfest but I think the most fun would probably be the class picture that we took,” she said. “They took it from the football field and we stood like the band does in the ND shape.”Sophomore Dea Meissner, said she and other transfer students were divided into small groups which allowed them to get to know other students. Meissner said it was especially helpful for those who were not Gateway students — students who enroll at Holy Cross College during their first year of studies and transfer to Notre Dame during their sophomore year.“I think they did a good job of breaking people into small groups because I think the hardest part is no one knows each other or you’re in a situation where half of the people are Gateway and you’re not Gateway,” she said.Sophomore Kyla Kosidowski, a Gateway transfer student, said each small group was led by upperclassmen who had transferred to Notre Dame in previous years.“They were really willing to help us with anything we needed, and … they were just more than happy to help us with anything that we had questions on,” she said. “So that’s been nice, [having] a support system from people who’ve already been through the same thing we have.”Junior Margaret Meserve, Cavanaugh Hall’s Welcome Weekend co-captain, said it was rewarding to see the event come together this weekend.“  … You go into things like this with a little bit of anxiety because it’s kind of your baby,” she said. “We’ve been working on it since the spring so I think we started in April. It’s a long time of planning … but it really just ended up being a success so I think it went really well.”Tags: Class of 2021, Welcome Weekend 2017last_img read more

No Saints fire sale, insists Reed

first_img The likes of Lallana, Calum Chambers and Shaw have also been strongly linked with a move away this summer, with a report this week claiming the latter is on the verge of a move to Manchester United. That speculation appeared to be the final straw for Reed, who took the unusual step of making a statement before Pochettino’s standard press conference previewing Saturday’s match with Everton. The executive director did not take any questions, preferring instead to give a five-minute statement in order to give an “accurate picture of where we stand at the moment” due to the unrelenting speculation. “No club has been given permission to talk to any of our players,” Reed said. “That will remain so. “As far as the policy is concerned, we’ve had a great season. We want to build on that season. We want to improve the squad going forward. “We want to retain the players we’ve got. They are all contracted. They all have existing contracts and we intend for them to honour those contracts. “Any enquiries we get will probably be met with a ‘no, not for sale’. Our intention is to keep this very good team together and build on it by bringing new players to improve on that. “Every transfer window, particularly in the summer, is difficult because everybody is out there trying to attract players. We have our targets. We want to improve the squad. These are things we’re discussing on a daily basis. Saints are all but certain to secure a comfortable top-10 finish at the end of a season in which their style and focus on home-grown talent has attracted many plaudits. That, though, has brought with it admiring glances from afar and manager Pochettino’s burgeoning reputation has seen him installed as the bookmakers’ favourite to become Tottenham’s next manager. Executive director Les Reed has fired a shot across the bows of those hoping to lure away Southampton’s top talent, warning potential suitors that the likes of Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana and manager Mauricio Pochettino are staying put. “We will tend to develop a squad that’s capable of not just maintaining the position we’re in but improving next season. “Therefore, it’s a positive message we want to get out there. I think our fans deserve to understand that there is not going to be a fire sale here. We have repeatedly said that. “We’ve had no offers for players. Deals are not about to be concluded for any of our players and we want to keep all of our best players here at this club and build on that for the future.” Morgan Schneiderlin has joined Southampton’s injury list heading into Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash with Everton. The French midfielder received a heavy knock to his quadriceps and joins Jay Rodriguez (knee) and Gaston Ramirez (ankle) on the sidelines. Maya Yoshida (knee) remains absent for Saints for the Toffees’ visit, as does back-up goalkeeper Kelvin Davis (back). Defender Sylvain Distin misses Everton’s trip with a hamstring injury. With fellow centre-back Phil Jagielka still a week away from returning from a similar problem it means John Stones and Antolin Alcaraz will be central defensive partners. Forward Kevin Mirallas (groin) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season and with Darron Gibson, Arouna Kone, Bryan Oviedo, Steven Pienaar and Lacina Traore all still sidelined, manager Roberto Martinez will look to his under-21s to bolster his squad. Martinez has urged some of the club’s young players to seize the opportunity presented by their current injury problems. It leaves Martinez short of options ahead of the trip to Southampton but he has already put faith in younger players this season with great success and has no qualms about asking members of the under-21s to contribute to their bid for Champions League football. “We have young players who are capable of coming in and showing what they can do and that excites me,” Martinez said. “This weekend maybe we will have to bring in someone from the under-21s and give him an opportunity. “That is what we are as a club. We will not blame players that are missing we just celebrate the opportunity given to young players.” Press Associationlast_img read more
