Law School Hosts Annual Auld Lang Syne Luncheon


In what has become a cherished holiday tradition, nearly two dozen members of the CUA Law community gathered on Dec. 3 for the Columbus School of Law’s annual Auld Lang Syne luncheon, held in room 220.
The festive occasion honors and celebrates the law school’s senior alumni, those who graduated prior to 1970. Faculty and staff members are also in attendance.
Dean Veryl Miles took advantage of the opportunity to keep the visiting alumni current with the latest news and law school initiatives, offering succinct state-of-the-law-school-remarks at the conclusion of the meal. Professors in attendance also explained new programs underway and other educational developments.
The spirited program was bolstered by a three-song musical performance from Take Note Acapella, a gifted group of Catholic University undergraduates whose talents have also entertained audiences from travelers on the D.C. Metro system to Pope Benedict XVI.
The group cheerfully describes its singing as “a way of keeping the future architects, teachers, nurses, journalists, and priests of America from losing their marbles.”
