The entire CUA Law School community took a pause from the busy final exam season for a few minutes to share in the lighting of the Columbus School of Law's Christmas tree in the building's atrium on December 1.
Assistant Dean for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Katie Crowley, Rev. Jude DeAngelo, O.F.M., and Dean and Knights of Columbus Professor of Law Dean Daniel F. Attridge all offered brief remarks, urging students to take a breather from the work of Law School to reflect upon the blessings of love, community, family, and friendship during the time of Advent.
Dean Attridge made a point of congratulating first-year students who have nearly completed their first semester of Law School.
"We gather today to prepare for Christmas and to recognized fact that we do so as members of a community of students, staff, faculty, alumni, and friends of the Law School," said Dean Attridge.
Then the Law School's Christmas tree was illuminated once again by Dean Attridge. It will remain lit though the end of the academic semester.
