Two rapes reported

By on January 26, 2021

first_imgTwo rapes were reported to campus administrators Tuesday according to Wednesday’s Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) crime log.One of the alleged rapes occurred Friday in a “East side women’s residence hall”; the other allegedly occurred Sept. 24 in a “Northwest men’s residence hall.”As of press time, students have not received an email alert from NDSP regarding either report. An email seeking comment from University spokesperson Dennis Brown seeking clarification as to why students had not received an email notification had not been returned. The Clery Act requires universities to issue “timely warnings” if certain crimes are brought to their attention, including all legally defined sex offenses. However, the Clery Act does not define “timely.”Information about sexual assault prevention and resources for survivors of sexual assault are available online from NDSP and from the Committee for Sexual Assault Prevention (CSAP).Tags: NDSP, rapelast_img read more

SMC students discuss potential ACTF plays

By on

first_imgTags: American College Theater Festival, Thespians Unplugged Saint Mary’s will submit two performances to the American College Theater Festival in hopes of having them selected and performed at the event in January. The American College Theater Festival (ACTF) is sponsored by the Kennedy Foundation. According to the festival’s website, ACTF is “a national theater program involving 18,000 students from colleges and universities nationwide.”Thespians Unplugged co-president Stephanie Johnson, a junior, said ACTF is a multi-faceted theater experience. “ACTF is a festival which allows thespians of all natures and backgrounds to grow and explore their talents and interests, offering performance, workshop and technical opportunities for the student and artist,” she said.Thespians Unplugged co-president Makena Henell, a senior, said the College’s theatre program will submit two shows to the festival — “Lucky, Liar, Loser” which premiered in April, and a performance directed by the Tectonic Theater Project which will premiere in November. “We’ve submitted two shows — ‘Lucky, Liar, Loser,’ and we will be submitting the Tectonic Theater Project,” she said. “I would love to see Tectonic accepted into the festival because it’s Saint Mary’s story.”Johnson said she feels the two shows are reflective of the student performer. “Our two shows prospective for the festival are designed for the students in mind, catering to a desire for creating dialogue and harnessing our talents,” she said.Sophomore Elizabeth Ferry said she hopes “Lucky, Liar, Loser,” a show that allowed female characters to share their stories about violence, is selected for the festival. “I feel confident it will be selected,” she said. “It’s a show that provokes a conversation that we all need to have in this day and age, especially in college settings. Bringing it to ACTF will help facilitate a larger conversation.”Sophomore Sandy Tarnowski said she also believes “Lucky, Liar, Loser” has a chance at being selected to perform at the festival.“I definitely think ‘Lucky, Liar, Loser’ has a chance of being performed,” she said. “It is a very relevant piece and something that needs to be talked about and shared, and it is very well put together and understandable.”Ferry said she feels the plays appeal to the theater community and those who consume theater. “ACTF is theater people, so the demographic of people who would come to our show would be more apt to see artsy shows and abstract shows, which is what ‘Lucky, Liar, Loser’ and Tectonic Theater Project are,” she said. “We’re trying to make art and theater accessible to everyone, but the people who attend ACTF might have a deeper appreciation for unconventional or more modern forms of theater.” Ferry said official ACTF judges observe the plays and report their critiques in order to determine which plays will be performed at the festival. “Our directors apply to have their play adjudicated,” she said. “Official adjudicators come in to watch the show and they talk with the cast about it and take notes. At the end of the year, all the adjudicators get together and discuss the shows they want to put on. Five to ten shows from the region are then selected and performed at the festival.”Henell said Saint Mary’s hosts ACTF representatives even when the directors are not submitting their plays to the festival. “We have two ACTF representatives come to all of our shows here at Saint Mary’s,” she said. “Even if we’re not promoting the show or sending it to ACTF, they still come and we get great feedback. Normally, it’s so positive and it’s great to get applauded for our hard work. They usually praise the stage managers and backstage crews so I feel like a lot of unsung heroes then can get their turn in the spotlight.”Ferry said she is eager to see the adjudicators’ results.“It’s secretive the way they choose the plays,” she said. “We don’t know what they’re looking for or if they want certain types of shows.”Henell said if one of the plays is chosen, the cast and crew get to attend the festival for free. All students have the opportunity to attend the festival, however, she said, and there are workshops and theatrical performances sponsored all throughout the week. “There are fun workshops all week,” she said. “There’s ones in stage combat, dance, lighting design and costume design, just to name a few. They also have workshops on how to do your resume for theater or apply for a job or internship in theater. You’re encouraged to take as many as you want. There’s also ten minute scenes to go see and short competitions to watch, as well as a musical theatre intensive.”Tarnowski said she feels having a play selected to perform at the festival will draw more attention to Saint Mary’s.“I feel like having one of our plays performed would bring a lot of attention to Saint Mary’s,” she said. “It might inspire more people to go to Saint Mary’s and do theater here, and it would give a small, all-girls, private college a chance to shine and show people that even though the College does not have a huge, over-funded theatre program, we can still put on a great show.”In December, Ferry said, Saint Mary’s will find out if its plays have been selected for the festival. Having a play chosen by the ACTF would be an esteemed honor, she said. “It would be an amazing experience to get our shows selected because we would get to perform for our peers all across the region,” she said. “It’d be an honor to be chosen.”last_img read more

Sister John Miriam Jones, instrumental in making the University co-ed, dies at 95

By on

first_imgSister John Miriam Jones, a retired associate provost and professor, died Sunday, Nov. 3, the University said in a press release. Jones was instrumental in making Notre Dame co-educational.“Sister John Miriam was one of the pivotal figures in Notre Dame’s transition to co-education,” Rev. Edward A. Malloy said in the release. “She befriended the first generation of Notre Dame undergraduate women and made their transition easier. She was full of wisdom, kindness and enthusiasm. We will miss her deeply.”Jones was the first senior female official in the University’s administration, the release said. Additionally, she held master’s and doctoral degrees in biology and microbiology, respectively.She spent 17 years at Notre Dame, holding a variety of positions. She coordinated faculty appointments, supervised affirmative action activities, provided for the needs of students with disabilities and served as the liaison to the ROTC programs, in addition to integrating women into the University.On the topic of integrating the University in the fall of 1972, Jones once said: “Many men undergraduates found it hard to be welcoming. There was a nightly rating system in the dining hall; catcalls from the windows of the men’s halls; run-throughs in women’s halls; and something akin to non-inclusion in the classrooms.”Jones also planned the University’s first presidential inauguration and served as the executive chair of Notre Dame’s sesquicentennial celebration.She left Notre Dame in 1989 to become the provincial of the Central Province of the Sisters of Charity in Cincinnati.From 1997 to 2001, Jones served as academic dean at the College of Mount St. Joseph in Cincinnati.In October 1999, Sister John was one of the first individuals inducted into Notre Dame’s Wall of Honor, located on the ground floor of the Main Building, for her work in the University’s transition to educating both males and females, the release said.According to the release, the Sisters of Charity and family members will allow guests to attend services at Motherhouse Chapel at Mount St. Joseph from 2 to 3 p.m. Tuesday Nov. 12, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial in the chapel. Memorial contributions can be made to the Sisters of Charity Retirement Fund in Mount St. Joseph, Ohio.Tags: co-ed, Sister John Miriam Jones, Sisters of Charitylast_img read more

Awoniyi not ready to copy Salah, Mane at Liverpool

By on September 24, 2020

first_img Loading… The 22-year-old joined Mainz on a season-long loan deal last summer. Hampered by work-permit issues, it is Awoniyi’s sixth loan spell since joining the Reds in 2015. After initially struggling for playing time in Germany, Awoniyi has featured in every game since the Bundesliga restarted in May, scoring his first goal for the club in the 2-2 draw with FC Koln. It was perfect timing for Awoniyi, who recently told Tribalfootball that he remained in constant contact with Liverpool. With manager Jurgen Klopp deciding against signing Timo Werner this summer, there could be space for Awoniyi to compete with Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino for a spot in the squad, if his work-permit issues are solved. This could allow Awoniyi to spend significant time learning from Liverpool’s fearsome attacking triumvirate of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane. But speaking to Tribalfootball, the Nigerian insists he wants to carve out his own identity within Klopp’s squad. “The truth is, I always just want to be me on the football pitch,” he said. “And the likes of Salah, Mane and Firmino prove everything is achievable, especially from Mane and Salah. “But Firmino is totally different and amazingly fantastic from many centre forwards that I have watched.” Reds boss Jurgen Klopp started his coaching career with Mainz after retiring as a player in 2001. The German spent seven years as manager of Die Nullfünfer, winning promotion to the Bundesliga in 2004. read also:Too early to decide on Awoniyi’s future, says Mainz manager And Awoniyi says the presence of Klopp remains strong at Opel Arena.
