No class on St. Patrick’s Day

Letter to the Editor | Monday, February 16, 2009

While looking at a schedule, I noticed that classes are in session on March 17, 2009 here at Notre Dame. This is absolutely preposterous (this is not sarcasm. I’m totally serious!) This is Notre Dame, so we should be throwing the biggest St. Patrick’s Day Celebration outside of Ireland itself, NOT going to class. Also, St. Patrick is a very important saint. He brought Christianity to Ireland and helped it spread rather quickly. Although many schools have class on his very special day, I think we should show St. Patrick some respect and cancel classes.
