On my normal day walk back from class, I passed by a security notification restricting Royce Hall access tonight due to Bill Clinton’s speech. Yes, Bill Clinton, former president of the United States. It’s certainly not an everyday occasion that a man of this stature speaks at our University! He was the keynote speech for the Luskin Lecture for Thought Leadership.
What’s even better, students were offered tickets to hear him speak. I, unfortunately, had a midterm scheduled for the time of his speech and was unable to attend. On the bright side, I was allowed to use a cheat sheet and completely rocked biostatistics. But, I did enjoy the increased presence of security guards.
