In an effort to develop a greater spirit of fraternity at Mount St. Mary’s, Student Government Association (SGA) President, Deacon Thomas Haan (S’13, Lafayette-in-Indiana) instituted the first ever “Battle of the Classes” last Tuesday, on the final day before the first official day of classes. The Battle of the Classes consisted of various competitions in which each of the six classes at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary competed against each other to determine who is truly the superior class at the seminary. The events included age-old American favorites such as dodge-ball, horseshoes, cornhole, beach volleyball, trivial pursuit, and tug of war. At the conclusion of the day’s activities, the class of 1st Theology was crowned the champions of Mount St. Mary’s Seminary. 4th Theology came in second place, while 2nd Theology finished third. The prize awarded to the champions: Of course, free drinks at the seminary pub, Mother Seton’s Place.
