I Miss College – Nerd Edition

So I saw another interesting tidbit in our Williams feed to the left, and it made me think of Jeff’s post from last week about missing the giddy, crazy, time-wasting fun of the end of the school year.

I’ve subtitled this the “nerd edition” because what caught my eye is not so much of the make-out-in-the-library or play-trivia-all-night category.

Former astronaut and SenatorJohn Glenn (D-Ohio) will be speaking with Karen Kwitter, Ebenezer Fitch Professor of Astronomy, as part of the commencement extravaganza of events.

How cool is that?!

I was definitely the type to go listen to the amazing visiting speakers/support my friends at performances/attend the sporting events all in lieu of doing my reading.  Ah, those college days!

Check out the press release for more info about Glenn’s support of public service and Kwitter’s pretty impressive background.

What is a “public dialogue”? A bull session in front of God and everybody?

At Berkeley– just inside the gates of Sproul Plaza– I always enjoyed the elevation of a Chinese immigrant, standing upon two garbage cans, intoning: “HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY! No more God in America!”

Agreed. Cool.
