Marius Felix Retires: When Comes Such Another?

Aug 02, '19

My first memory of Mr Felix was meeting him during Orientation of my first year. My father had just left, and in a sudden flash, I realized I was alone in the middle of nowhere. But standing tall as ever by the Ross Building was Mr Felix, a lighthouse drawing in students who felt lost. Recognizing him from the stories my father, an Old...
