Nicole Lindeman, ‘20
NDB community reflects on the postponement of Aquacades 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic
The Catalyst interviewed Nicole Lindeman, senior, about what would have been Aquacades.
TC: Friday would have been Aquacades, but it was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. What do you have to say about that?
NL: I think it’s really sad that our last ever Aquacades was impacted by the coronavirus and that we were unable to participate in this session.
TC: If we come back to school before the end of the year, do you think Aquacades should be rescheduled or should it be canceled?
NL: I personally don’t think that it should be rescheduled. I think that’s enough stress to maintain other events and try to reschedule others.
TC: People usually look at pictures or videos of last year’s Aquacades to learn what it’s about. One year from now, what do you want people to know about Aquacades?
NL: I think for this Aquacades, it would be important to remember that, while we weren’t able to celebrate it as we normally are… it still is an important part of Notre Dame’s foundation and of what the school stands for as a whole.
