Farewell to the Class of 2022 

The Oldest Story in My World
Angelina Fierko '22

There’s a quote I could never forget from my favorite TV show:

“It's the oldest story in the world. One day you're seventeen and planning for someday, and then quietly, without you ever really noticing, someday is today, and that someday is yesterday and this is your life.” - Nathan Scott, One Tree Hill 

Cheers to the Last 4 Years!
Heather Jones '24

It has been an interesting four years, to say the least. From moments in pop culture to international affairs that the children of the next generation will be studying in history textbooks, the world has overcome obstacles and sailed through new possibilities; and the Class of 2022 has had a front-row seat.

In Ictu Oculi
Zoe Capponi '22

“In the blink of an eye.” That’s what Mrs. Barlow says to us at Freshman Orientation. At first, I did not believe her, and my time at Notre Dame did not seem to be flying by as she said it would.

Time Goes On
Arielle Rios '22

I think everyone can say that coming out of high school, they are a completely different person than who they were going in. It’s easy to blame it on natural maturity, but I firmly believe that a large chunk of my personal growth happened because I chose Notre Dame specifically.

Broadcasting the Baskets
Maxx Simeon '22

The ball bounced against the court, before arriving in a player's hand. The crowd passionately roared to the opposing team's chants for “Defense!” Passing it to his teammate, the star player threw the ball through the air and watched as it flew in the basket, a perfect three-pointer.
