first_imgEditor’s note: This article is one in a series profiling the dorms. Previous articles have covered dorms built before Dillon Hall.Approximately 87 years ago, Dillon Hall opened to residents, funded by Knute Rockne and a 1925 Rose Bowl victory for Notre Dame.The hall is named after Fr. Patrick Dillon, the second president of the University of Notre Dame. The chapel is dedicated to St. Patrick but contains a side altar dedicated to St. Olaf, the patron saint of Norway, to honor Rockne, who was born in Norway. Though Rockne’s success with the football team was the source of funding for Dillon Hall, he never got to see it completed. The side altar was added after the chapel was completed to honor Rockne and his dedication to the university.“I love the location, I love the culture and I love the amount of guys in regards to [interhall] athletics,” Hayden Parkhill, a sophomore currently living in Dillon, said.After Notre Dame’s athletic success in the 1920s under Knute Rockne, the University built Dillon and Alumni Halls to house the growing student population. Along with Alumni, Dillon first housed students in the fall of 1931. Students, however, were asked to spend the first few weeks of the semester in South Bend houses while waiting for the residence halls to be completely finished, Fr. Paul Doyle, the rector of Dillon, said a member of the first class of Dillon residents told him.Next year, the residents of Dillon Hall will move into the currently unnamed building on McGlinn fields behind West Quad so Dillon itself can undergo renovations. Though the students would traditionally move into Pangborn during the reconstruction, Dillon Hall contains so many residents that it would be impossible to fit all of them into Pangborn, Doyle said.Doyle said he hopes the renovations preserve the windows above the doors in Dillon, known as transoms.“We’re the only dorm left with transoms that work. I hope they survive the rehabilitation,” Doyle said in regards to the renovations.Dillon Hall is well-known across campus for its Thursday night “Milkshake Mass.” In 1997, Doyle started the milkshake mass to encourage questions about faith and fellowship among students. As another positive, Doyle said, the free milkshakes offered around 10:45 p.m. every Thursday give students a reason to avoid going off campus to socialize.“The chapel holds 170 people, [but we always have] people sitting on the floor,” Doyle said.When asked what they enjoyed most about living in Dillon, both Parkhill and Doyle said the community that comes along with being such a big residence hall was extremely important to them.“You get put in a dorm by the computer, yet each dorm has its own personality based on the students who are here. The creativity of the student leadership is a really big deal,” Doyle said. “It’s so edifying to be around such good young people, and all my classmates who come back say that. … Surely, the best part about [being rector] is the students.”Tags: Dillon Hall, dorm community, dorm features, Milkshake Masslast_img read more

first_imgAdventure Mapmaker Pete Kennedy’s Favorite Gear for ExploringPete Kennedy doesn’t want you to get lost. The Asheville-based adventurer and mapmaker is the founder of Pisgah Map Company, putting 30 years of his own experience exploring the mountains of North Carolina into comprehensive trail guides. In an increasingly digital age, Kennedy’s maps offer a refreshingly analog perspective on some of the region’s most popular destinations, like Pisgah Ranger District and The Blue Wall along the border of South Carolina and North Carolina.“People’s spatial awareness is so bad now because we’re so busy following our GPS,” Kennedy says. “The small screen on the phone doesn’t allow you to have that big picture view and make a good plan for your trip. Being able to have that big overview and see how things relate to each other is important.”Pisgah Map Company has eight different maps on the market now, with a new one set to cover the Hot Springs area along the Tennessee border. Kennedy is an avid mountain biker, trail runner, and paddler who spends weeks in the field exploring the areas he maps. We asked him to detail the gear he relies on during his exploratory trips.NRS Outlaw | $1,995We actually use the Osprey, but it’s been replaced by this version. With a family of four that includes two young kids, this raft allows us to get out on the water. And it’s really light; I can push it on top of the car and get it strapped down myself. My wife and I R2 it with the kids all over the place.Specialized Enduro | $3,200This is what I take for super fun days on the trail. It’s an all-mountain bike, so it’s not really designed for ultra long distances. But honestly, these bikes are made so well now, and the geometry is so dialed in, that they climb as well as anything else on the trails.RockGeist Honeypot | $50This is a little food container you put on the handlebars of your bike. I use this for when I go a little further and might need some extra food, or when I pull the kids and need to get to snacks quick. The company is out of Asheville too, and specializes in custom bikepacking gear.Avenza Map App | FREEI always carry a paper map with me, even if it’s not mine. But this map app is great. You can get all of our maps through the app and store them offline so you can have them on your phone at all times. Same cartography, just on the screen, which a lot of people like.Patagonia Houdini | $99I love this lightweight jacket. It packs really well, and it’s good for when the weather is just a little bit iffy. It won’t keep you totally dry in a two-hour downpour, but it’s good for early morning mist, the occasional shower or if the temperature drops.Topical Edge PR Lotion | $35This is a topical pain relief and performance lotion. It’s pretty new on the market. Basically, I put it on before and after a run or long ride. Sodium bicarbonate is the active ingredient, which helps relax the muscles.last_img read more

In an environment where card fraud and security risk is increasingly prevalent, is your card management product ready for all that action? More importantly, how are you marketing your card controls to your members? Recent card control developments have come about that can not only help your members get a grip on all that activity but also allow them to more closely monitor exactly what is happening with their accounts. However, if members are not aware that they exist, and are therefore not using them, what good do they do? Take a queue from a Utah credit union who infused humor into their social media feed to illustrate to members the capabilities of their mobile banking app to protect them: continue reading »last_img read more
