Marquette Golden Eagles
The Marquette Golden Eagles known as the Marquette Warriors and Gold, Gold and Golden Avalanche, are the athletic teams representing Marquette University in Milwaukee, United States. They compete as a member of the NCAA Division I level competing in the Big East Conference for all sports since its establishment in 2013; the Golden Eagles are a founding member of the current Big East, having been one of the seven members of the original Big East that broke away to form a basketball-focused league. They had joined the original Big East in 2005, having competed in Conference USA from 1995–96 to 2004–05, the Great Midwest Conference from 1991–92 to 1994–95 and the Horizon League from 1988–89 to 1990–91, they competed as an independent from 1916–17 to 1987–88. Men's sports include basketball, cross country, lacrosse, soccer and track & field, while women's sports include basketball, cross country, soccer, track & field and volleyball; the men's basketball team won the NCAA national championship in 1977, was a finalist in 1974 and a semifinalist in 2003.
The 1970 team won the National Invitation Tournament. The nickname change to "Golden Eagles" came in May 1994. Eleven years the university added "Gold" to the nickname in May 2005, but it was reversed in about a week after public backlash. On December 15, 2012, Marquette and the other six Catholic, non-FBS Big East schools announced that they were departing the Big East for a new conference. In March 2013, it was confirmed that the "Catholic 7", along with three other schools, would begin operations that July as a new Big East Conference; the men's basketball team is ninth in the NCAA for postseason appearances all-time, including 30 NCAA Tournament appearances. The Warriors, coached by Al McGuire, won the 1977 NCAA Tournament and were runners-up in 1974. Maurice "Bo" Ellis was a member of each of those teams, remains the only Marquette player to appear in two Final Fours; the 2003 team, coached by Tom Crean and led on the court by Dwyane Wade, Robert Jackson, Steve Novak, Travis Diener, upset top-ranked Kentucky to reach the Final Four of the 2003 NCAA Tournament.
In that Midwest regional final in Minneapolis, Wade became the fourth player to record a triple-double in an NCAA tournament game. He was the Conference USA Player of the Year. Marquette has continued to re-emerge as a national power after 2003; the program has made seven straight NCAA tournament appearances dating back to 2006, has made three consecutive NCAA Sweet 16 appearances in 2011, 2012 and 2013. In 2012, Marquette experienced their best season since 2003, tying the single season school record for wins, finishing second place in the Big East for the first time in program history, finishing ranked in the Top 10 of the AP and USA Today/Coaches Poll for the first time since 2003. Jae Crowder was named Big East Player of the Year, the first such conference player of the year honor for a Marquette player since Dwyane Wade in 2003; the team plays in the nearby home of the Milwaukee Bucks, Fiserv Forum, which replaces the Bradley Center, home to both teams for 30 years, for the 2018–19 season and beyond.
Conference affiliations The charter of the current Big East dates only to 2013. However, the settlement between the schools that formed the current Big East and those that remained in the league now known as the American Athletic Conference gave the departing schools the "Big East" name. Additionally, The American recognizes none of the pre-2013 athletic history of the Big East—even in football and women's rowing, the only two sports sponsored by the original Big East that are sponsored by The American but not the current Big East; the women's basketball team is coached by Carolyn Kieger. The program has experienced success in recent years under former coach Terri Mitchell's direction, including a run to the championship game of the WNIT, where the women finished as runners-up in 2006, won the championship in 2008. Most the team made it to the second round of the NCAA tournament in 2011, where they were defeated by top-seeded Tennessee. Marquette women's basketball has qualified for the NCAA tournament seven times since 1994.
The team now plays in the Al McGuire Center, named after the former Marquette men's coach. The team notably hired Tyler Summitt, the 21-year-old son of legendary Tennessee coach Pat Summitt, as an assistant effective with the 2012–13 season, the announcement coming on the same day his mother announced her retirement after 38 years leading the Lady Vols. In 2006, Marquette traveled to St. Thomas to participate in the Paradise Jam Tournament. In the opening round Marquette defeated Western Michigan 74–61. In the second round Marquette defeated Auburn 65–61. On the final day, Marquette beat Xavier 73–53 to finish with a 3–0 record and win the 2006 Paradise Jam Championship; the cross-country and track teams have produced five Olympians, 13 NCAA champions and 27 All-Americans. Except for Dwyane Wade, Marquette's most successful student-athlete was track and field sprinter Ralph Metcalfe, a world-record holder and Olympic gold medalist. Olympic silver medalist Melvin "Bus" Shimek was the longtime coach of both programs.
Shimek set the school record in the mile in 1927 and it held up for over thirty years. Both programs were dropped with football in December 1960, but cross country was reinstated within weeks so
Wisconsin is a U. S. state located in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions. It is bordered by Minnesota to the west, Iowa to the southwest, Illinois to the south, Lake Michigan to the east, Michigan to the northeast, Lake Superior to the north. Wisconsin is the 20th most populous; the state capital is Madison, its largest city is Milwaukee, located on the western shore of Lake Michigan. The state is divided into 72 counties. Wisconsin's geography is diverse, having been impacted by glaciers during the Ice Age with the exception of the Driftless Area; the Northern Highland and Western Upland along with a part of the Central Plain occupies the western part of the state, with lowlands stretching to the shore of Lake Michigan. Wisconsin is second to Michigan in the length of its Great Lakes coastline. During the 19th and early 20th centuries, a large number of European settlers entered the state, many of whom emigrated from Germany and Scandinavia. Like neighboring Minnesota, the state remains a center of German American and Scandinavian American culture.
Wisconsin is known as "America's Dairyland" because it is one of the nation's leading dairy producers famous for its cheese. Manufacturing, information technology, cranberries and tourism are major contributors to the state's economy; the word Wisconsin originates from the name given to the Wisconsin River by one of the Algonquian-speaking Native American groups living in the region at the time of European contact. French explorer Jacques Marquette was the first European to reach the Wisconsin River, arriving in 1673 and calling the river Meskousing in his journal. Subsequent French writers changed the spelling from Meskousing to Ouisconsin, over time this became the name for both the Wisconsin River and the surrounding lands. English speakers anglicized the spelling from Ouisconsin to Wisconsin when they began to arrive in large numbers during the early 19th century; the legislature of Wisconsin Territory made the current spelling official in 1845. The Algonquin word for Wisconsin and its original meaning have both grown obscure.
Interpretations vary. One leading theory holds that the name originated from the Miami word Meskonsing, meaning "it lies red", a reference to the setting of the Wisconsin River as it flows through the reddish sandstone of the Wisconsin Dells. Other theories include claims that the name originated from one of a variety of Ojibwa words meaning "red stone place", "where the waters gather", or "great rock". Wisconsin has been home to a wide variety of cultures over the past 14,000 years; the first people arrived around 10,000 BCE during the Wisconsin Glaciation. These early inhabitants, called Paleo-Indians, hunted now-extinct ice age animals such as the Boaz mastodon, a prehistoric mastodon skeleton unearthed along with spear points in southwest Wisconsin. After the ice age ended around 8000 BCE, people in the subsequent Archaic period lived by hunting and gathering food from wild plants. Agricultural societies emerged over the Woodland period between 1000 BCE to 1000 CE. Toward the end of this period, Wisconsin was the heartland of the "Effigy Mound culture", which built thousands of animal-shaped mounds across the landscape.
Between 1000 and 1500 CE, the Mississippian and Oneota cultures built substantial settlements including the fortified village at Aztalan in southeast Wisconsin. The Oneota may be the ancestors of the modern Ioway and Ho-Chunk tribes who shared the Wisconsin region with the Menominee at the time of European contact. Other Native American groups living in Wisconsin when Europeans first settled included the Ojibwa, Fox and Pottawatomie, who migrated to Wisconsin from the east between 1500 and 1700; the first European to visit what became Wisconsin was the French explorer Jean Nicolet. He canoed west from Georgian Bay through the Great Lakes in 1634, it is traditionally assumed that he came ashore near Green Bay at Red Banks. Pierre Radisson and Médard des Groseilliers visited Green Bay again in 1654–1666 and Chequamegon Bay in 1659–1660, where they traded for fur with local Native Americans. In 1673, Jacques Marquette and Louis Jolliet became the first to record a journey on the Fox-Wisconsin Waterway all the way to the Mississippi River near Prairie du Chien.
Frenchmen like Nicholas Perrot continued to ply the fur trade across Wisconsin through the 17th and 18th centuries, but the French made no permanent settlements in Wisconsin before Great Britain won control of the region following the French and Indian War in 1763. So, French traders continued to work in the region after the war, some, beginning with Charles de Langlade in 1764, settled in Wisconsin permanently, rather than returning to British-controlled Canada; the British took over Wisconsin during the French and Indian War, taking control of Green Bay in 1761 and gaining control of all of Wisconsin in 1763. Like the French, the British were interested in little but the fur trade. One notable event in the fur trading industry in Wisconsin occurred in 1791, when two free African Americans set up a fur trading post among the Menominee at present day Marinette; the first permanent settlers French Canadians, some Anglo-New Englanders and a few African American freedmen, arrived in Wisconsin while it was under British control.
Charles Michel de Langlade is recognized as the first settler, establishing a trading post at Green Bay in 1745, moving there permanently in 1764. Settlement began at Prairie du Chien around 1781; the French residents at the trading post in what is now Green Bay, referred to the t
Marquette University Law School
Marquette University Law School is the law school of Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is one of the only private law school in the state. Founded in 1892 as the Milwaukee Law Class, MULS is housed in Eckstein Hall on Marquette University's campus in downtown Milwaukee. Marquette University is a Catholic institution operated by the Jesuit order; the law school's mission includes a commitment to the Jesuit idea of cura personalis, a duty to promote diversity, a goal of encouraging its "students to become agents for positive change in society."As of the 2016-17 academic year, the school has 575 enrolled students and 98 faculty members and administrators, including 30 full-time faculty members, 10 "deans and others who teach," and 58 part-time faculty members. For the fall 2016 entering J. D. class, there were 190 enrolled students. Wisconsin, unique among American states, allows graduates of accredited law schools within the state to be admitted to the Wisconsin state bar without taking the state's bar examination if they complete certain requirements in their law school courses and achieve a certain level of performance in those courses, a practice known as the "diploma privilege."
Marquette University Law School was born out of Marquette University's 1908 acquisition of the Milwaukee Law Class and the Milwaukee University Law School. First known as the Marquette University College of Law, the school added a day division to the two predecessors' evening programs; the first dean was James Graham Jenkins, a retired judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. In 1916, the first edition of the Marquette Law Review was published, in 1923, the college's name was changed to Marquette University Law School. A year the school moved into Sensenbrenner Hall. A law review article at the time described the building's interior: "four large lecture rooms and a large Moot Court room" and a "third floor be occupied by the library capable of holding 50,000 volumes." The law school became a member of the Association of American Law Schools in 1912 and received American Bar Association approval in 1925. The evening program was suspended in 1924 as part of the accreditation process, was not restored for decades.
It was under Dean Robert Boden. He took over as acting dean in June 1965, served as dean until his death in 1984. During those nearly 20 years, the size of the full-time faculty tripled, the student body nearly doubled, the law library doubled the size of its collection. Boden oversaw a significant increase in the physical plant of the law school, making two major additions to Sensenbrenner Hall. Moreover, in January 1968, the law library moved into the newly constructed Legal Research Center, appended to the west side of Sensenbrenner Hall; the move was managed by Professor Mary Alice Hohmann, the first woman to teach a law course at MULS. In fall 2010, the school moved into the new Eckstein Hall; the school recently received the two largest gifts in its history: $51 million from alumni Ray and Kay Eckstein for Eckstein Hall, $30 million from real estate developer Joseph Zilber, the bulk of which will endow scholarships. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia spoke at the September 2010 dedication ceremony.
In September 2010, the Law School opened $85 million Eckstein Hall in downtown Milwaukee. The building was funded by donations from Ray and Kay Eckstein, Joseph Zilber, Wylie Aitken, the Bradley Foundation. Zilber and Sheldon Lubar contributed provided funding for scholarships and other law school programs. Eckstein Hall is located on the eastern end of the Marquette campus, two blocks from the Milwaukee County Courthouse and a mile from the Federal Courthouse. At 200,000 square feet, the building is four stories tall, it includes a four-story "library without borders," two mock courtrooms, a four-story atrium, a cafeteria, a workout facility, a conference center and faculty offices. The classrooms were all designed as "smart classrooms" with projectors, audio recording, individual microphones built into classroom seating. Marquette University Law School offers two degrees, the Juris Doctor, the largest program, the LL. M in Sports Law program, for foreign attorneys only; the school's National Sports Law Institute, established in 1989, is affiliated with the LL.
M. program and conducts other activities. The school has five clinical programs as of spring 2012: Mediation Clinic, Unemployment Compensation Advocacy Clinic, Restorative Justice Clinic, Prosecutor Clinic, Public Defender Clinic. U. S.

St. Joan of Arc Chapel
St. Joan of Arc Chapel is a Roman Catholic chapel today located in Milwaukee, United States, on the campus of Marquette University, in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, it was dedicated to St. Joan of Arc on 26 May 1966, after it had been moved from its previous location on Long Island, New York, United States, it was built in the Rhône River Valley in France. Named "Chapelle de St. Martin de Seyssuel", the chapel was built over several generations in the French village of Chasse-sur-Rhône, south of Lyon, it is estimated. The building fell into ruin. After World War I, the young architect Jacques Couëlle rediscovered the chapel and negotiated its transfer to the home of Gertrude Hill Gavin, the daughter of James J. Hill, best known as the founder of the Great Northern Railway, in Brookville, New York, United States. Couëlle went so far as to refer to the chapel as "ce monument absolument unique en son genre"; the chapel was shipped to New York in 1927 where it was reconstructed for Gertrude Hill Gavin, the new owner, by John Russell Pope.
There it was attached to a French Renaissance chateau. Although the chateau burned down in 1962, the chapel was not damaged. After Gavin died, her estate passed to Marc B. Rojtman and his wife, who decided to present the chapel to Marquette University in 1964; the transfer of the chapel took more than nine months, another eight months passed before reconstruction began. Lucien David and Earnest Bonnamy planned the second reconstruction; when in New York, the famous Joan of Arc Stone was added to the chapel. According to legend, St. Joan of Arc prayed before a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary that stood on the stone, after which she habitually kissed the stone. Since, it is said to be colder than the stones that surround it; the tomb of Chevalier de Sautereau, a former Chatelain of Chasse and "Compagnon d'Armes" of Bayard, is still located in the floor of the sanctuary. The chapel features Christian artifacts that predate the original chapel, in some instances by multiple centuries, which have been collected and displayed in the chapel, including ancient Spanish tapestries, coats of arms, a contemporary rooftop.
It is one of the few exhibits of items from antiquity which visitors are permitted to handle or touch. The stained glass windows are not original: Gertrude Hill Gavin, the owner of the chapel in New York, commissioned the windows. Charles J. Connick created and installed them in 1929. Connick modeled the color scheme of the windows on those of the stained glass windows in the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City.

Americans are nationals and citizens of the United States of America. Although nationals and citizens make up the majority of Americans, some dual citizens and permanent residents may claim American nationality; the United States is home to people of many different ethnic origins. As a result, American culture and law does not equate nationality with race or ethnicity, but with citizenship and permanent allegiance. English-speakers, speakers of many other languages use the term "American" to mean people of the United States; the word "American" can refer to people from the Americas in general. The majority of Americans or their ancestors immigrated to America or are descended from people who were brought as slaves within the past five centuries, with the exception of the Native American population and people from Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the Philippine Islands, who became American through expansion of the country in the 19th century, additionally America expanded into American Samoa, the U. S. Virgin Islands and Northern Mariana Islands in the 20th century.
Despite its multi-ethnic composition, the culture of the United States held in common by most Americans can be referred to as mainstream American culture, a Western culture derived from the traditions of Northern and Western European colonists and immigrants. It includes influences of African-American culture. Westward expansion integrated the Creoles and Cajuns of Louisiana and the Hispanos of the Southwest and brought close contact with the culture of Mexico. Large-scale immigration in the late 19th and early 20th centuries from Southern and Eastern Europe introduced a variety of elements. Immigration from Asia and Latin America has had impact. A cultural melting pot, or pluralistic salad bowl, describes the way in which generations of Americans have celebrated and exchanged distinctive cultural characteristics. In addition to the United States and people of American descent can be found internationally; as many as seven million Americans are estimated to be living abroad, make up the American diaspora.
The United States of America is a diverse country and ethnically. Six races are recognized by the U. S. Census Bureau for statistical purposes: White, American Indian and Alaska Native, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, people of two or more races. "Some other race" is an option in the census and other surveys. The United States Census Bureau classifies Americans as "Hispanic or Latino" and "Not Hispanic or Latino", which identifies Hispanic and Latino Americans as a racially diverse ethnicity that comprises the largest minority group in the nation. People of European descent, or White Americans, constitute the majority of the 308 million people living in the United States, with 72.4% of the population in the 2010 United States Census. They are considered people who trace their ancestry to the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, North Africa. Of those reporting to be White American, 7,487,133 reported to be Multiracial. Additionally, there are Latinos.
Non-Hispanic Whites are the majority in 46 states. There are four minority-majority states: California, New Mexico, Hawaii. In addition, the District of Columbia has a non-white majority; the state with the highest percentage of non-Hispanic White Americans is Maine. The largest continental ancestral group of Americans are that of Europeans who have origins in any of the original peoples of Europe; this includes people via African, North American, Central American or South American and Oceanian nations that have a large European descended population. The Spanish were some of the first Europeans to establish a continuous presence in what is now the United States in 1565. Martín de Argüelles born 1566, San Agustín, La Florida a part of New Spain, was the first person of European descent born in what is now the United States. Twenty-one years Virginia Dare born 1587 Roanoke Island in present-day North Carolina, was the first child born in the original Thirteen Colonies to English parents. In the 2017 American Community Survey, German Americans, Irish Americans, English Americans and Italian Americans were the four largest self-reported European ancestry groups in the United States forming 35.1% of the total population.
However, the English Americans and British Americans demography is considered a serious under-count as they tend to self-report and identify as "Americans" due to the length of time they have inhabited America. This is over-represented in the Upland South, a region, settled by the British. Overall, as the largest group, European Americans have the lowest poverty rate and the second highest educational attainment levels, median household income, median personal income of any racial demographic in the nation. According to the American Jewish Archives and the Arab American National Museum, some of the first Middle Easterners and North Africans arrived in the Americas between the late 15th and mid-16th centuries. Many were fleeing ethnic or ethnoreligious persecution during the Spanish Inquisition, a few were taken to the Americas as slaves. In 2014, The United States Census Bureau began finalizing the ethnic classification of MENA populations. According to the Arab American Institute, Arab
Richard Lippold was an American sculptor, known for his geometric constructions using wire as a medium. He studied at the University of Chicago, graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in industrial design in 1937. Lippold worked as an industrial designer from 1937 to 1941. After he became a sculptor, Lippold taught at several universities, including Hunter College at the City University of New York, from 1952 to 1967; the Lippold Foundation is laboriously maintaining his work. Howard Newman: Lippold was an engineering genius, but we’ve been dealing with a piece that had reached the threshold of catastrophe... People’s mouths fall open when they see it going back up, like they’re watching a spider spin a web of blazing gold...“The more that goes up, the more exquisite it gets.
