Identity

This is only our second year as a residence hall at Notre Dame, which means that YOU are an integral part to establishing dorm culture and history. 

Dorm Colors - 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."

Mascot - 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.

Signature Events - Each dorm has a couple annual events (usually creative charity fundraisers) to increase the dorm's visibility and community as well as to contribute to the fun atmosphere on campus. We already have quite a few in place but we certainly are looking forward to creative new ideas.
