            An absolutely unique institutionThirty four years later, I think about my time at Cooper almost daily. My professional path has been steady and consistent, always opening-up in new directions of discovery, and I owe it ALL to Cooper Union. Heartfelt thanks to all who are still trying to keep it tuition-free. It's the only way.
