Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Friday, October 02, 2009

Like we weren't even there...

I attended the grand opening of Cooley Law School's Ann Arbor campus yesterday at the corner of Plymouth and Green. And while I am glad to see the facility getting use, there were tears in my eyes as I walked the halls and saw new names on the offices, the Cooley logo everywhere, etc. I had to stop from crossing myself reflexively as I walked past "the chapel" to the library.

Man, what would it be like to still have my alma mater thriving there? To have that rallying point for my class and all future classes? To be able to go back for a reunion and relive, however briefly, the good old days of law school? And more substantively, how great would it be to be able to nurture that relationship, to have my alma mater there to help further my career and in turn, be there for me to enthusiastically support it and give back as alumni are expected to do, which I would do gladly?

Some wounds do not heal.
