It took a while to arrive, but the fall season finally settled in on campus during the month of October. This brought with it the familiar scenes of changing leaves and football Saturdays, as well as several milestone events in the life of the University: the visit of His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, and the annual meeting of the Black Catholic Theological Symposium.
