Dunne Hall community reflects on brotherhood, signature events

first_imgObserver File Photo Founded in 2016, Dunne Hall is one of the newest dorms on campus. Known for its signature events such as the Dunne Funne Runne and the DunneDance film festival, Dunne won Men’s Hall of the Year in 2018.Former hall president junior Manuel DeBrito said Dunne gives students freedom to be themselves and develop strong friendships.“A lot of dorms have a very specific culture set already. … But at least in Dunne, I felt as though I didn’t have to conform to a certain kind of a college student,” DeBrito said. “We were all from so many different backgrounds and from so many different cultures that it’s kind of just a mesh of all those different things and people. Because of that, people feel comfortable to be themselves and to find friends that have personalities similar to theirs or different from theirs without being judged by anyone else.”Spring vice president and sophomore Carson Richter said though its history is still developing, Dunne has a strong community.“I’d definitely say it’s a pretty tight-knit community,” Richter said. “As far as traditions and culture, it’s still developing, but there’s some pretty good guys there now and everyone gets along pretty well.”Dunne’s pioneer-like mentality, coupled with its drive to make a name for itself has created a community of motivated men, Kuczora said.“They’re generous when pitching in to put on an event and genuinely look out for one another,” he said. “They’re willing to put in the hard work to create something unique that will last for generations and they’re very creative.”The annual Dunne Funne Runne demonstrates the creative spirit and energy of the Sentinels, DeBrito said. The event, a 3k and three-person relay race held on East Quad, benefits Education Bridge, a school in South Sudan founded by a Dunne alumnus, Kuczora said.“Basically, you run around with three guys. It’s a relay and everyone is cheering you on in various stages, so everyone can see the other costumes,” DeBrito said. “ … We’ve had it twice now, and both years it’s been super successful. People just enjoy going out and having a good time on Saturday without necessarily having to demonstrate athletic ability — we’re just there for some laughs and that’s Dunne Funne Runne.”Hall president sophomore George Lyman said the run has potential to be the dorm’s signature event.“I think it’s something that could grow into something really big on campus, but I think there’s still room for it to grow,” he said.The DunneDance Film Festival — a student run film festival which takes place in April — demonstrates the creativity of student filmmakers from Dunne and across campus, DeBrito said.“We do like an Oscars kind-of award ceremony where we rank best actor, best supporting actor and best movie,” Brito said. “We also do best foreign films where other dorms can submit their movies to us and then we’ll watch them. It’s a great laugh.”This growth and interest in the event this past year is promising for the event, 2019 fall vice president Nicholas Spitzer said.“We also had a lot more foreign film submissions from other dorms, so that’s showing how it’s growing,” Spritzer said. “It’s a lot of fun to watch all these people with all these creative ideas get thrown together and watch them all be presented.”In a short time, Dunne has proved itself a rival to the more-established dorms, Spitzer said.“Dunne’s really shown to have a group of outgoing people who are really passionate. … I really enjoy being in it because there’s so many different directions it could go.” Spitzer said.Lyman said he appreciates the chance to build a community from the ground up in Dunne.“I love being in Dunne — you can ask anyone in Dunne, I’ll tell them that,” Lyman said. “I think it’s really interesting to be in a place where traditions are still forming and you get to really make your mark on a community. … I wouldn’t give up the chance to establish our own traditions for anything. I think that’s really awesome.”Tags: dorm features, Dunne Funne Runne, dunne hall, Dunnedance film festival, East Quad One of Notre Dame’s newest dorms, Dunne Hall has stood on East Quad since 2016.Named after donors Jimmy and Susan Dunne, rector Fr. Matthew Kuczora said some may be tempted to think Dunne lacks the tradition of older dorms. However, Dunne’s newness provides an opportunity to explore new ways of developing and fostering individual and community growth, he said.“Being a relatively new residence hall community, there is a warmth and openness here that is very strong,” Kuczora said in an email. “Because residents initially came from every men’s hall on campus, we’ve been able to create our own traditions and culture as the years have progressed. I think this allows everyone to feel a sense of belonging, since we’re not simply upholding traditions created by others in the past.”last_img read more


Doc Rivers appreciates Clippers’ versatility in quest to exploit matchups

first_img What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters “One through four we were all small so … whoever had the ball was pushing it,” he said. “We were just playing. It was like positionless basketball at that point with me, Shai, Pat, Lou and Trezz. It was just guys running around, playing, spacing the floor. It’s fun to play small and play fast.”It might be fun too, to try on a totally different look, Rivers said.“We’ve gone small a couple times, we’ve never gone gigantic, which I think we can do that, too, you know?” he said. “We literally would be big. If we ever go zone, you’ll see it.”MISSED CALL CONFIRMEDRivers described it as a “brutal non-call” and, after further review, the NBA agreed.With 22.7 seconds left in Saturday’s 109-104 loss to the Detroit Pistons, Lou Williams lost the ball after dribbling around a Danilo Gallinari screen near the top of the key.What happened before Williams lost possession gave him reason to complain vigorously to officials Zach Zarba, Curtis Blair and Aaron Smith – and he was right: Bruce Brown, who wound up with the ball, grabbed Williams’ left arm, “affecting his control of the ball,” per the NBA’s “Last Two Minute Report,” which was released Sunday.The league regularly releases an assessment of officiated events occurring in the last two minutes of games that were within three points at any time in the last two minutes of the fourth quarter or the last two minutes of any overtime period, with reviews of all calls and notable non-calls – such as the one in question.“I thought that was a brutal non-call at the end of the game,” Rivers said Saturday. “Lou’s the only one with the ball, I don’t know how everyone can miss that. Those are game-changing plays and those can’t be missed.”Had the foul been called, Williams – a 90.7 percent free-throw shooter – would have gone to the line with an opportunity to reduce a three-point lead to one.Instead, Brown got the ball, was fouled, made both free throws and extended Detroit’s lead to five points.LAWLER HONOREDThe National Sports Media Association on Monday announced that longtime Clippers broadcaster Ralph Lawler was voted by his peers as the 2018 California Sportscaster of the Year. He’ll be honored in June at the NSMA Awards weekend in Winston-Salem, N.C.Lawler, 80, plans to retire after this, his 40th and final season with the Clippers.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES — Coach Doc Rivers is a big fan of the mix and match-up game, eager to experiment with on-court combinations when the opportunity arises.Take, for example, the lineup the Clippers debuted in the second quarter of Saturday’s loss to the Detroit Pistons: Lou Williams, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Patrick Beverley, Tyrone Wallace and Montrezl Harrell.That four-guard group – of whom Harrell, the 6-foot-8 center, is the tallest – inherited a 37-24 deficit. In five minutes of work, they whittled it to a 45-40 disadvantage.It was just a sliver of a sample size, but, hey, that lineup had a net rating of 72.7. Six of the group’s seven baskets were assisted on, including two by Harrell, who finished the game with a career-high-tying six assists. Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum “It’s so much versatility, I wish we had more practice time,” Rivers said. “There’s still lineups that we haven’t discovered. I believe that every year to be honest, but with this group, even more so.”Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.Rivers said he especially loves when opponents open the door by putting a small lineup on the floor themselves.“It really helps us, especially if they go small against our second unit,” Rivers said. “Because that allows us to put some pretty physical guards on the floor. (But) no one does it, to be honest, not very often. And the way that group played, we may not see it ever again.”The Clippers have shown glimpses of going small before, with Thornwell joining that aforementioned group in place of Gilgeous-Alexander. That particular unit has played just six minutes together, but during that time, they have a net rating of 29.7.For his part, Wallace enjoyed Saturday’s four-guard run.last_img read more
