What Your Classmates are Saying About the Reunion Event
"November 18th is an opportunity for us to (a) connect with those we never met because we were studying (or working) too hard, (b) re-connect with those we studied with, drank with, and (c) discover that where we've been bears equal meaning in the course between where we are and where we are going, individually and together."
"DCL’s building, both historic and antiquated, had its charm. A hundred plus years of graduates. Four admitting classes a year; fall, winter, night and day. For many of us, our first careers; for many their second. For every DCL grad, Im sure there is a unique perspective on their DCL and law school experience. But what we all share, is the fact that our careers were launched with the education we received at DCL."
"Like most historic building, DCL's building had that "old architecture" feeling that, for me, provided a sense of connection to those 100 or so years fo graduates that proceeded us into lawyerland."
"It cannot be an easy path attempting to move an institution forward without estranging those who comprise its history. That is a the call which, in my opinion, has been met by Dean Howarth, her administration, the faculty, and the active alumni."
"MSU College of Law’s foundation is DCL, and is now rated one of the top 100 law schools nationally. Indeed Dean Howarth has made it her mission to retain the core values of DCL, and the new law school is adorned by a plethora of DCL historical presentations."
"The firestorm that has now netted a top 100 law school which, while bearing a new name, still boasts many names on the faculty roster which are familiar and, for my part, regarded with warmth and admiration."
"The real focus of this event, as Dean Howarth impressed upon me, is a rare opportunity for all of us to re-connect, share memories, enjoy the moment, catch up on each others lives, and reunite for most of us, for the first time……since (insert your grad year here)!"
"I urge each and everyone of you to make the commitment and attend this reunion event from whatever distance. It will be fun and incredibly wonderful to see each of you again. I am totally intrigued by learning about your career and paths since the days of 130 East Elizabeth Street. I hope you feel likewise and I hope to see you there!"
