Marquette unveils new Jesuit Residence
Former Marquette President Father Robert A. Wild, S.J., took reporters on a tour of the university's new 40,000-square-foot, five-story Dr. E. J. O'Brien Jesuit Residence, where he and 24 other Jesuit priests just moved before the building's formal dedication last Friday. "I thought this might be tough fundraising, but it came together as quickly as any project we've had at Marquette," Wild said of the new residence.

Joseph Kearney, dean of the Law School, gave a history lesson on the U.S. Supreme Court. "If the judiciary is no longer protecting practices because they stem from obligations arising from one's creator, discerned from Scripture and supported by the teachings of church leaders and theologians, but instead because a claimant simply feels a higher power or inner calling, then the judiciary is not operating with a coherent theory of religious freedom but rather just deferring to individuals' idiosyncratic senses of self-realization, autonomy," Kearney said.
