Dunne is now rolling into its third year and is really getting a lot of attention around campus, as we were recognized as Men’s Hall of the Year! We are proud of the culture and community we have developed over the past four semesters, and just as proud of the incredible signature events we have put together. We hope whoever comes through Dunne’s doors will be just as willing to contribute to the community and as willing to maintain Dunne Hall’s status as one of the premier dorms on campus. The men of Dunne look to the future and are excited to see what it holds for us!
Dunne Hall is the home of the Sentinels. Since our hall is located near the east gate into campus, a guardian or watchman was a fitting symbol. In addition, Dunne Hall's motto is Potentia Videre, Fortitudo Agere "the competence to see and the courage to act." The motto comes from the Constitutions of the Congregation of Holy Cross. For us, it means that in Dunne Hall we grow in our ability to recognize injustice and understand life's challenges, and then we work to make the world a better place, supported by our brothers. A sentinel is a watchman and so he must keep vigil and keep watch for danger as well as act when necessary to protect others and raise the alarm.
Dunne's colors are Quad Green, Hesburgh Blue and Stonehenge Gray. They embody our identity and mission. Quad Green reflects our brotherhood forged as we enjoy sports, cookouts and music on the lawn in front of our hall. Hesburgh Blue calls to mind the blue waters of the reflecting pool outside of the Hesburgh Library and represents the wisdom and knowledge our residents gain as they study there, developing the "competence to see." Stonehenge Gray echoes the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who are memorialized in the Clarke Memorial "Stonehenge" Fountain inspiring us to have the "courage to act."
