So much for Saturday

Letter to the Editor | Sunday, September 27, 2009

Dear those of you who were screaming on North Quad at 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning,

Here at Notre Dame, we spend our fall semesters getting little sleep, trying to balance a heavy academic course load, a decent social life and football games. Our only opportunities to sleep in are Saturday mornings of away-game weekends. Why was it necessary to hold Pyro-lympics on a Saturday, why that early and why were you on North Quad?

In the future, please consider moving this event to Stepan Fields or nearer to Pasquerilla East at the very least, out of respect for every non-Pyro or anyone who values his or her precious sleep. Otherwise, please extend the invitation to everyone on North Quad (and anywhere else you paraded) because Lord knows we were all awake.

Lauren Thompson
