The boys begin taking exams this week, so it’s time to be serious here on The Waffle Iron– in solidarity. In fact, let's talk about solidarity on The Hill.
Like exams, almost all aspects of MBA challenge the boys to push themselves. In the Junior School, the challenge comes primarily from teachers and coaches. By the time the boys are upperclassmen, more of that pressure emanates from the boys themselves. The expectation is that each student will do his best. As teachers and coaches guide them, they discover that their “best” is a lot better than they thought. There’s even a kind of positive peer pressure, a particular brand of camaraderie, that develops in relationship to that expectation.
MBA boys take that camaraderie with them into manhood. Because they maintain strong friendships with their MBA classmates, the expectation that they will do their best also never leaves them. That expectation applies to the boardroom, to the family dining room, to the touch football field, to every aspect of their lives. These guys stay in touch with each other forever, and they hold each other accountable throughout their ongoing pursuit of the MBA Ideal…assuming they can make it through exams.
Good luck, gentlemen.

Parking for the game tonight will be limited due to a wedding at Vine Street Church and the unavailability of the front fields because of recent rain. Since we are expecting a large crowd, we encourage you to arrive early and to park in the Wilson Avenue parking garage. Additional parking will be on the St. Cecilia/ Dominican Campus if needed.
