Questioning Siegfried’s claim to manliness

Letter to the Editor | Monday, February 5, 2007

We applaud the residents of Siegfried for raising money for South Bend’s Center for the Homeless during their Day of Man. However, we believe that Tom Martin’s claim that Siegfried is “one of the manliest dorms on campus” is unfounded.

Fortunately for the Ramblers as well as all other dorms on campus, there is an opportunity this weekend to truly prove your (wo)manliness. At 2 p.m. Saturday, beginning in front of Morrissey Manor, there will be a two-lap “Polar Run” around South Quad. This race is a dorm competition (we will even provide everyone with body paint) and the winning dorms can make uncontested claims as the manliest or womanliest dorms on campus.

After the race, there will be free hot cocoa and cider and we will be collecting money for St. Vincent de Paul. If you missed out on Siegfried’s Day of Man or are looking for another way to prove your (wo)manliness while supporting a good cause, come to Morrissey’s Polar Run this weekend.
