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

From bad to worse: Wisconsin basketball team experiences travel problems after upset loss

first_imgThe Badgers were expected to have an off day Wednesday, but this probably isn’t how they were hoping to spend it. It is unknown when the team is expected to arrive back in Madison.Wisconsin (25-3, 13-2 Big Ten) fell to the Terrapins Tuesday night 59-53. The Badgers made only 29.6 percent of their shots in the first half and shot only 38.5 percent overall. Wisconsin was just 6 of 22 (27.3 percent) from three for the game.After the loss to Maryland, Wisconsin will return to the court Sunday against Michigan State at the Kohl Center. With a win, UW will clinch at least a share of the Big Ten regular season title – something it could not accomplish against the Terrapins. Tip off on Sunday is scheduled for 3 p.m.Update: Somehow things have gotten even worse for the team and its expedition back to Madison. The team apparently has gotten another charter plane, but of course, it’s delayed in South Carolina.But the fun doesn’t stop there. The Badgers’ bus that was supposed to take them from the hotel back to the airport…wait for it…broke down.A simple plane ride from Maryland to Madison is turning into a nightmare.Update from Pittsburgh: Think we have a plane but it’s delayed in S.C. Thought we had a bus to airport but it broke down. Of course it did.— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) February 25, 2015 If an upset loss to No. 14 Maryland in College Park wasn’t bad enough, the No. 5 Wisconsin men’s basketball team couldn’t even make it back to Madison without trouble Tuesday night.The team’s charter flight that was en route back to Madison was forced to make an emergency landing in Pittsburgh due to engine malfunction around midnight last night. Before the engine malfunction, the trip did not start off on the right foot either, as it took over an hour to simply close the cabin door on the charter plane, according Wisconsin radio color analyst Mike Lucas.center_img The team was unable to make it back to Madison last night and was “stranded” across three different Pittsburgh hotels. But most importantly, everybody appears to be safe.last_img read more

Farida Bulega: We need to improve in attacking third

first_imgBulega’s Crested Cranes hammered Djibouti 13 in their opening game on Sunday. (PHOTO/File)Uganda Crested Cranes coach Faridah Bulega says her team needs to improve in their attack and command more possession if they are to return home with the 2019 CECAFA Women’s Championship.The country’s national women’s football team butchered Djibouti 13-0 on Sunday in their opening game, but despite the emphatic victory, Bulega believes they could’ve done more damage.Juliet Nalukenge who was the top scorer in the COSAFA U17 Cup a few months ago, scored five goals while Hasifah Nassuna and Fazilah Ikwaput each notched a hat trickFauziah Najjemba and Amina Nababi were also on the score sheet as Uganda got the convincing win, but Bulega insists a lot needs to be down upfront.“We’ve got our first win. We beat Djibouti by 13 goals which was very good, however, we need to improve on some areas like scoring and ball possessing. Because last time we lost the trophy because we failed to score more goals.“We’ve been working on shooting although we failed to score more goals today. This game could’ve easily ended 25-0. But we shall continue working on our shooting and finishing. We have to make sure that we score from every chance we create because last time we lost the trophy to Tanzania because of goal difference.”In the other group B game, Kenya beat Ethiopia 2-0 to climb into the second position on the log.Up next for Uganda is a contest against Ethiopia on Tuesday, the same day Kenya takes on Djibouti.Comments Tags: Amina NababiCECAFA Women’s Championship 2019Djiboutifaridah bulegaFauziah NajjembaFazilah IkwaputHassifah NassunaJuliet Nalukengelast_img read more
