The Theme

landmark

 

noun  land·mark \-?märk\

 

: an object or structure on land that is easy to see and recognize

 

: a building or place that was important in history

 

: a very important event or achievement

 

This year’s theme is “Manresa 2016: A Landmark X-perience.” Landmarks are mostly known as nouns in our vocabulary. When the word ‘landmark’ comes to mind, we tend to think of places like the Seven Wonders of the World, or buildings and structures like Lady Liberty, the Great Wall of China or the Eiffel Tower. Another meaning of ‘landmark’ that many overlook is the third definition; a very important event of achievement. After reading this, we reflected on the phrase, “landmark experience” and realized that it was a perfect fit to implement into our theme. We chose this because we believe that students at Xavier will experience what is Merriam-Webster’s third definition of the word, “landmark.” Attending college is a big step in a young person’s life and it’s important to celebrate that. Manresa does just that as it is a great way to introduce the milestone that is the start of a new “X-perience.”  Manresa is only the beginning of a first-year’s challenging, memorable and exciting journey. We only hope that this first impression of Xavier is a positive kick-start to a wonderful  Landmark X-perience.
