Men of Duncan,

Happy Ides of November! In case you haven't heard, Duncan Hall is playing its best football this November! Basketball season begins after Sunday!

Championship Sunday
Duncan Hall Football plays Stanford Hall on Sunday at 4pm in the Notre Dame Stadium for Duncan's first ever Interhall Tackle Football Championship! It's kind of a big deal! Here's the semifinals highlights.

CARE with Annie Eaton
Wednesday at 5pm in the 2-4: Annie Eaton, a Care Consultant, will be in Duncan Hall to help you navigate stress and anxiety. There is no concern or problem too small or insignificant. We want to become involved early so that concerns can be assessed and addressed. Come one, come all. Chick-fil-A will be served.

Thanksgiving Breakers
Those who are staying for Thanksgiving Break, please fill out this form so we know who's in the building. In addition to security reasons, I will host some events and do not want you to miss out.

Notre Dame Symphony Orchestra

That's all gentlemen.  In light of the smoking announcement, here the last thing: two Jesuit novices both wanted a cigarette while they prayed. They decided to ask their superior for permission. The first asked but was told no. A little while later he spotted his friend smoking and praying. "Why did the superior allow you to smoke and not me?" he asked. His friend replied, "Because you asked if you could smoke while you prayed, and I asked if I could pray while I smoked!"

Peace brothers,
