RA staff present Last Lecture Series

March 29, 2011


A teacher once asked himself: “If this were my last time to address a group of students, what would I say to them?” With that question, the Last Lecture Series was born.

As such, RA Complexosaurus Rex presents the Beloit College Last Lecture Series. The Last Lecture Series offers a chance for faculty and staff to speak to the student body about anything important that they feel should be said as if it was their last time to address students. Three excellent individuals have been selected.

The inaugural speaker will be physics professor Pat Polley, with "The Trivialization of War in Liberal Arts Colleges." His Last Lecture is happening tonight (Wednesday) at 7 p.m. in Science Center 150.

The second speaker will be music professor Ian Nie, who will present on Monday (April 4) at 7 p.m. in Richardson Auditorium.

The final speaker will be Dean of Students Bill Flanagan, on Wednesday, April 6 at 7 p.m. in Pearsons' Moore Study Lounge.

Each speech will last approximately one hour, followed with roughly 30 minutes for questions and discussion.
