Christian Brothers High School is a place to learn and grow, but everyone has to eat.
Many lifelong friendships are discovered and developed during lunch time. The diversity of CB is also shown at lunch, with the many places to sit and the many people to sit with.
Lunch time is a time when students can speak freely and bond over whatever their parents pack for them to eat or the meal of the day. The students of CB have many choices of where to eat their delicious lunches.
From his blue bench surrounded by trees, bright eyed freshman Kenji Matsuno (‘17) explains why he sits there.
“It’s where I sat on the first day, so we kinda made it ours,” he says.
From the cafeteria filled with students to the lawn dotted with small groups to the intimate benches, even from their first of days at school, the students of CB tend to make the tables of the lunch time into a home.T he comfort of a well known area attracts students like bees to a hive and the tables from their past seem warm and welcoming.
Though where the students sit is important, their true loyalties lie not with the table but with their friends. Other students like Carlos Serrano (’16) do not sit where they are used to, but they sit with the people who they are used to.
“Pretty much where I sit is where my friends are sitting,” says Carlos.
Christian Brothers has a great community, but it is still a school and sometimes students have to leave the lunch room and crack down and according to some, the best place to do that is the library.
Friendly junior Kevin Vaughn (’15) gives insight of why he spends his lunches in the library from time to time.
“I never get my homework done at home so I go to the library, I get too distracted at home.” Kevin Vaughn (‘15)
When the pressure of a due date or a pile up of homework becomes too much to save for after school, students find refuge in the library to lighten their heavy workload. Sometimes lunch is pushed aside to make room for academics.
The students have to trade in their lunches for books and their friends for computer screens in order to stay afloat. Though a fair share of students do spend time there are a variety of other spots.
From the crowded cafeteria to the lawn with just a few people to the library, students can always be seen eating lunch and spending time with their friends at lunch.
