As the second semester begins, college application season has died down and the bicentennial class on Eye Street now has the chance to make the most out of their remaining months.

Usually, seniors run the show on campus, and the second semester is a chance for students to put stress aside to enjoy the greatness that Gonzaga offers at the educational and athletic levels without the heaviness of wondering where the next four years of their lives will be spent. 

With that being said, the Student Government Association has been putting countless hours into getting the freshmen acclimated to life at Gonzaga, but now it’s time for seniors to experience the glory of seniority and appreciate the success each one of their brothers has built for themselves over the past four years. 

 After Luke Jackman and I, this year’s senior representatives brought up the fact that lunches at Gonzaga play a vital role in fabricating brotherhood for the class of 2021, the Gonzaga administration has now let seniors go anywhere during lunch. Even though keeping lunches within homerooms keeps the students in safer environments, the idea of trusting seniors to follow COVID-19 protocols on their own is a gift.  

Now that the seniors can congregate anywhere, the “all in” mentality that took over campus throughout the 2019-20 school year can return, even though the student body is divided into thirds. Not only does this help insinuate brotherhood, but it should attract seniors to show up to school. 

Sometimes life hits us hard. Maybe our faith and tradition as a school are being challenged in its bicentennial year for a reason. The class of 2021 knows that we are all bonded under this school in linked arms as one. As COVID-19 precautions ease, the seniors will have a proper sentiment by once again gathering safely.

    Fine article, Finn. The Class of ’21 is a great group that has risen to the tall challenges of the past year.
