  • Busy Day on Campus

    It was a busy day on campus on Wednesday! The freshman participated in a substance abuse program. Sophomores enjoyed doing service projects at 10 different agencies around Cleveland. Groups served at Medwish, Maggie’s Place, St. Vincent de Paul, Geauga County Department of Aging, Jennings Center, Kemper House, Geauga Rescue Village, Habitat Restore, Chippewa Place and Catholic Charities. Juniors enjoyed a program on vocations, which explored the way vocation connects to the students’ lives right now. It explored our mission by asking big questions such as: What is my vocation as a student? How can I embrace my greater purpose? What is unique about the single life vocation? Finally, after taking the CWRA+ assessment in the morning, seniors learned the ins and outs of college in the “College 101” session sponsored by the Women’s Club (see story below). Check out the photos from the day!
  • College 101 Provides Advice for Seniors and Parents

    On Wednesday, the senior class and parents participated in a workshop called College 101 to help prepare them for college life. The program, sponsored by the Gilmour Women’s Club, allowed seniors to learn valuable information from professionals on topics such as legal rights and responsibilities, financial management, campus safety, life on a college campus and tips on how to be successful.

    Jeffrey Scott, chief of police of Notre Dame College, presented information on campus safety. Attorney Fred Carmen, executive vice president and general counsel for Millennium Management and past parent of Cameron Carmen '11, spoke about the legal rights and responsibilities that come with turning 18. Aaron Vaughn, a financial advisor with Ameriprise Financial in Westlake, provided information about managing their finances. Finally, we welcomed back recent graduates, Devin Fedele ’18,  Ethan Muchnicki ’18, Paige Cone ’18 and Marisa Salvino ’18 for a discussion about life on a college campus. The seniors had the opportunity to listen to each of the four presentations throughout the course of the workshop.  

    One of the important topics covered in the parent session was what legal documents you should have prepared when your child turns 18.  This article explains the reason for having the documents prepared. Aaron Vaughn, the financial advisor who spoke, provided examples of the suggested documents. We are including them here for your reference:

    -Ohio General Durable Power of Attorney
    -State of Ohio Healthcare Power of Attorney
    -Ohio Living Will

    If you have any questions about the documents, please feel free to contact Aaron at or (440) 655-1234.  
  • Fish Fry and Live Jive - All in One Night

    April 5, 2019, Fish Fry, 5-8 p.m., Commons. Live Jive, 6:30 p.m., Field House

    The Bard of Beachwood and Live Jive Moderator Mr.Greenfield sent along his thoughts on why you should be sure to attend...

    April 5, 2019 will be truly historic - for the very first time, the Fish Fry in the Br. Richard Keller Commons will occur immediately before Live Jive, and - for the very last time - Live Jive will be in the Field House in the Athletic Center. You may start your "Lententertainment journey" at the Fish Fry in the Commons starting at 5. As you pass from the Commons to the A.C., the management asks you to take note of the more-than-quasi-inspiring alacrity of the construction of the new venue for Live Jive- the Dodero Center for the Performing Arts!

    Be sure to arrive at the Field House by 6:30 p.m. for a wondrous cavalcade of student entertainment - from Broadway to pop tunes to Korean pop dance remixes to original poetry, Live Jive '19 promises to be an event that will end the Live Jive residency in the Athletic Center with a bang and not a whimper. Writing of T.S. Eliot, though April be purported to be the "cruellest month" in "The Wasteland," there will be nothing but bright, spring-promising camaraderie and energy on campus on the first Friday in April. Come for the Fish Fry, stay for Live Jive, and take home a unique cornucopia of memories!
