CUA Magazine Seeks 9/11 Stories
As we approach the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, CUA Magazine is looking for stories that show, in big and small ways, the impact of the event on the CUA community. Did you lose a loved one on 9/11? Or did you make a career change as a result of the tragedy? Perhaps you were in your dorm that morning and remember the reaction of your friends to the news. Perhaps you attended the Mass that day at the Basilica. If you'd like to share your story, please e-mail Katie Lee at by mid-April.
