Caring Legacy: Humble to the core, the late Brother Jim Madigan C.S.C. could fix just about anything, cared for all he encountered, and spent his life quietly doing good deeds for others to the benefit of the College and the Congregation of Holy Cross. In tribute to his legacy of caring, the College has renamed a building in his honor. For more, visit here.
