I am a graduating law student. I just want Mrs. Schmid (donor to the UNL College of Law) to know that I have used that reading room for many long hours. At times of uncertainty and stress, I have looked out those large windows onto the open space of East Campus and found peace. Thank you for your gift and support of the Law College.
