    Maggie (Studrawa 01) Holmgren

    Congrats on the new Aquinasmagazine. It truly puts theCollege into a new league foralums like me.

    One thought: Back in 70s, asI recall, there was an attempt,very successful at times I thought,to have several intellectualarticles in the magazine inaddition to all that importantinformation about the schools,the students, the faculty, thealums, etc.
