Faculty and staff farewell reception for Father O'Connell
Father O'Connell hugs Ernie Suarez after the chairman of the English department entertained the crowd at the faculty-staff reception in honor of the outgoing president. Suarez began his remarks saying, "I think he's making a  mistake." After "roasting" Father O'Connell for several minutes, Suarez turned serious long enough to say, "it's absolutely indisputable that this university is so much better than when he got here."
