    As a member of the 12th graduating class of LeMoyne College, I am pleased with this news.We’ve come a long way in 50 years. When I was graduating I was told that there was not much in jobs out there unless I wanted to be a teacher or secretary.

    I hope she will chart a slightly different course for the college and steer it away from mainstream secularism by not allowing some of the latest trends to be followed. As a Catholic college it needs to closer follow the ideals of the church.

    Thus, the continuing feminazation of the Church.
