Many Notre Dame students will arrive on campus this weekend and spend their time catching up with friends, organizing rooms and preparing for another semester of college. But for the incoming freshman Class of 2014, the weekend will be a long process of moving into an unfamiliar dorm, meeting new classmates and beginning to participate in the exciting, and somewhat awkward, experience that is Freshman Orientation, or Frosh-O.With many of the incoming freshmen forming their impressions of their new dorm and the University itself, members of the Frosh-O staffs say they are making every effort to personalize the move-in experience and make the transition as easy as possible for new residents.“We want to make sure that we welcome every single individual guy and make him feel at home,” junior Mitch Speer, Frosh-O commissioner for Carroll Hall, said. “Since we’re a small dorm, one individual student is 1 percent of my hall so we try and create a community atmosphere.”Other dorms see the move-in process as the ideal time to begin fostering relationships between the freshmen and their new home.“Throughout the move-in process, we want them to feel as comfortable as possible,” sophomore Mairin Talerico, Lewis Hall Frosh-O staff member, said. “We want to help them break out of their shells and become a part of this new family.”Several Frosh-O staff members said they understand that their efforts during the first weekend can potentially influence the freshmen’s attitudes about their next four years at Notre Dame. “We want to give the best impression of Notre Dame so that they start their first days of college with a positive attitude,” junior Kathleen McKiernan, Howard Hall Frosh-O commissioner, said. “It’s important that we give them a feeling of a place they want to be — their ‘home away from home.’”New Howard Duck Lily Rodgers said when she walked up to register at her new hall that “everyone knew my name and who I was, which was really cool.”Throughout the weekend, many of Notre Dame’s newest students have similarly felt welcomed to campus despite the chaos that surrounds the initial move to college.“So far everyone’s been really helpful and welcoming,” Morrissey Manor freshman Matt Hickey said. “The hall staff’s been outgoing and introducing themselves, but it’s still been pretty crazy trying to move everything in.”Freshman Andrea Rosado, a new resident of Pangborn Hall, said she “definitely” sees herself at home in Pangborn Hall and said her Frosh-O staff was very friendly. “The transition has been really easy,” she said. “I’m not nervous at all.”Easing the transition to Notre Dame requires a lot of time and effort on behalf of the Frosh-O staffs on campus, but most coordinators agree that the easiest way to make the new students welcome is to reach out and be a friend to the new freshmen.“We just try and be ourselves,” Speer said. “Our staff was picked for a reason. We put on a happy face and get these guys in the dorm and just make sure they enjoy themselves.”
The inaugural Dirty Dozen Wilderness Hiking Challenge wrapped up this fall. Co-sponsored by Blue Ridge Outdoors and The Wilderness Society, the challenge attracted over 565 hikers from 11 states who explored 66 different wilderness areas across the Southeast.Wilderness areas are the wildest, most pristine pockets of pure nature. No roads, vehicles, machines, or permanent structures are permitted in wilderness. They are places where the human imprint is minimized and ecosystems function naturally. The Southeast has an astonishing number and variety of wilderness areas, from Shining Rock to the Okefenokee Swamp.38 hikers became the first Dirty Dozen hikers: they hiked 10+ miles in 12 different wilderness areas across the Southeast. Timo Holmquist was the very first Dirty Dozen hiker, completing the challenge on April 13. A selection from Middle Prong Wilderness hike report appears below. Jeff Monroe hiked the most wilderness areas (17) and also logged the most miles (341.6).Hikers were honored at an awards ceremony in Asheville last month, where prizes were awarded in various categories.DIRTY DOZEN AWARDSFinished First1.

The men’s season opener against Marist tips off from the Events Center Saturday at 2 p.m. Head coach Tommy Dempsey said the team is excited to play at a competitive level for the first time since March. In addition to the new faces, Dempsey said he’s excited to see the development of last year’s freshman. Tinsley will be bolstered by the return of Thomas Bruce, who re-joins the Bearcats after a two-year injury absence. Bruce said his expectations for himself are even higher this season. With a mix of old and new players, Dempsey said one of the team’s strengths will be its depth. “George makes Thomas better and Thomas makes George better,” said Dempsey. “That’s a match up on that front line, we feel like we can have an advantage many nights.” The sophomore heavy team brings back America East rookie of the year George Tinsley, who led the conference in freshman scoring last season. “I think with all of the new guys we have, I think we could really surprise some people this year,” said Betram. Dempsey said Bruce and Tinsley complement each other on the court. “This year’s going to be much different, obviously because now you’re playing games back to back on weekends and now teams are going to be ready for what kind of style of play I am,” said Tinsley. “So I’m going to change it up and improve any way I can, and also take on a leadership role this year.” “Patience is good, too much patience is bad. So you have to find that line where you’re going to have to be a little bit patience early in the year,” said Dempsey. The team returns just two starters from the 2019-2020 season, and is looking to fill the scoring void left by point guard Sam Sessoms, following his transfer from Binghamton. “Of course I don’t feel like we’re completely ready but we’ll learn through our mistakes. The kids need to play,” said Dempsey. VESTAL (WBNG) — The Binghamton men’s basketball season will begin Saturday as the Bearcats host Marist to open the non-conference schedule. “Tinsley and (Brenton) Mills, Hakon (Hjalmarsson) and (Dan) Petcash and those guys, I mean they played a lot of minutes as freshman,” said Dempsey. “The old saying ‘the best thing about freshman is they become sophomores,’ well now they’re sophomores and you hope they can take the next step.” With limited practice this preseason, Dempsey said he expects physical mistakes early on, but he wants his players to focus on their attitude and effort. He said they’ve added pieces with the ability to score a lot of points, including transfer and Cooperstown native Tyler Bertram. “Last time I played I made the all-defensive team. I want to be defensive player of the year and also be on the all-conference team, and a championship of course,” he said.
