Honoring Fathers

“I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.” -Umberto Eco 

 

Whether you are a father, have a father, or love someone like a father, there’s no better reason to celebrate! DePaul sites in New York, North Carolina and South Carolina honored fathers with gift bags, photo shoots, delicious food and much more.
