Flaherty, Dunne halls select mascots, colors
Observer Staff Report | Wednesday, September 14, 2016
After several weeks of brainstorming and rounds of voting, Flaherty Hall selected the Bears as their hall mascot Tuesday night.
Flaherty Hall is the newest female dorm at Notre Dame, situated behind the library on the new East Quad.
Dunne Hall, the newest male dorm, selected the Sentinels as their mascot last week. Additionally, they chose navy and green as their hall colors.
The colors of Flaherty Hall — lavender and navy — were chosen last year by a vote from the women of Pangborn Hall.
The two dorms are some of the latest additions to campus, along with McCourtney Hall, the research facility that also opened on East Quad at the start of this academic year.
These are the newest dorms since Ryan Hall was built in 2009.
