Brothers at “The Quad”

Marianists from St. Mary’s University joined several student organizations for “Quad Friday”—a traditional, weekly gathering of student Greek fraternities and sororities on Friday mornings. Rather than wooden Greek letters, the brothers showcased their symbol—a Marianist cross made of wood, created by Brother Fred Halwe, S.M., an English professor at the university. Wearing their “Rush S.M.” shirts, the Marianists offered home-baked cookies, lemonade and water to all students. Coffee tables, couches and the famous Chaminade bust—on loan from the University Center—added a living room atmosphere to the Marianist section. This week, the event took place at Chaminade Field, rather than The Quad, as part of a trial-run for next year when construction to Reinbolt Hall will make The Quad unavailable for this weekly gathering. The brothers not only found this to be an enjoyable way to interact with students, but also a unique opportunity to promote a culture of Marianist vocations—after all, the Marianists are the oldest fraternity on campus whose founder is set to become a saint!
