  • “He's 'living off of' gratitude,” St. Paul Pioneer Press, Nov. 24, 2004. Here’s a nice story about Father Mike Joncas of the UST Theology Department faculty, and his long battle with Guillain-Barré Syndrome.
  • “Early birds get the deals,” St. Paul Pioneer Press, Nov. 26, 2004. “That atmosphere is no accident, said Dave Brennan, co-director of the Institute for Retailing Excellence at the University of St. Thomas. ‘That's really what they're trying to do.’”
  • “Law gets religious perspective,” St. Paul Pioneer Press, Nov. 26, 2004. This story first was published in The New York Times on Nov. 22, 2004. “Ann Arbor, Mich., and St. Thomas in the Twin Cities – differ in many ways. But they share an opposition to what they see as the moral relativism of the standard law school education and the moral peril of much law practice. Patrick J. Schiltz, a law professor who helped found St. Thomas Law, said in a speech there that the school does not want to produce ‘nameless, faceless lawyers who populate the giant law firms in New York and Washington and Chicago, grinding out thousands upon thousands of billable hours, often toward no end other than getting rich and determining whether one huge insurance company will have to write out a check to another huge insurance company.’”
  • “Business notes,” St. Paul Pioneer Press, Nov. 26, 2004. “The CEO Roundtable, an organization for CEOs of growth-driven companies, said it is naming its annual scholarship the Dennis D. Anderson CEO Roundtable Scholarship. The University of St. Thomas presents this annual scholarship to either a graduate or an undergraduate student studying at UST's John M. Morrison Center for Entrepreneurship.”
