A bus left Aquinas College the morning of Thursday, January 24 before 5 a.m. bound for the 40th Annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. The administration allowed students to attend the march without counting it as an absence, and similarly, for faculty or staff without being forced to use a vacation day. The group traveling to Washington represents the largest Aquinas contingent to date. January 22 marked the 40th anniversary of the passage of Roe v. Wade. Students, faculty, and staff spent two afternoons earlier this week placing 3,000 crosses on the front lawn to memorialize the 3,000 children lost every day to abortion.
