Perhaps one of the most exciting times of the Fall semester, Homecoming Week was packed full of activities (such as the House yell competition). As is tradition, Thursday night built up the intensity with our annual Bonfire, leading us to an energetic 41-14 victory over Landry Walker in Joe Zimmerman Stadium.
Students had a chance to meet with recruiters for a number of prominent colleges and universities covering a wide range of disciplines and interests, a testament to our diverse student population.
On Friday, October 7, all of Shaw came together to end the week by praying the rosary in the gym. For the prayer, everyone was provided with rosary beads and was guided by a diagram of candles on the gym floor. The prayer was led by members of seniors in the Shaw student body, who received this opportunity through their religion class.
Before the rosary was prayed, the students were given a talk by Mrs. Hyuna Franklin from the Community Center for Life. The talk centered around respecting the life we have been given and respecting the lives of others, especially the unborn. Mrs. Franklin also talked about the mission of the Community Center for Life, which is providing for and educating future mothers who may struggle to support themselves after having a child. After the talk, students were also provided with the opportunity to donate to the Community Center for Life by being given baby bottles to return to school with donations.
The day ended with a recognition of Brother Zatti’s canonization as a saint in the Church. This event is an important moment for the Salesians as Brother Zatti is the first Salesian brother to be canonized as a saint.
Officially the start of admissions season, Shaw’s Open House brought together our entire campus community eager and willing to show the West Bank why Shaw is the choice for Catholic education.

A night of fun, friends old and new, and great food. This year’s event had a great compliment of amenities (such a three large screens streaming the LSU game, two bars, and a live five-piece band) that made this the most successful event yet.

FEAST days are an opportunity for students to learn important lessons outside of the classroom: leadership, teamwork, and fraternity. This particular FEAST day was no exception.
