7:00pm - 8:30pm
The Last Lecture Series featuring Dr. Elise Blackwell, English
The "Last Lecture" series invites faculty to give a lecture as if it's the last one they'll ever give. It showcases the academic and personal interests and passions of faculty members on the USC-Columbia campus in an informal setting. Faculty compose a hypothetical talk on any topic of their choosing.
The purpose of these lectures is to allow professors and students to encounter one another outside of a classroom. Lecturing professors have the opportunity to speak on topics that are significant and intriguing to them. The lecture series helps connect students with the central purpose of a college education — the encouragement of intellectual curiosity.
Scholars United invites you to nominate your favorite professors by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations are accepted on a continuing basis.
Refreshments served, and the event is open to the public. Coordinated by Scholars United.
Location: Gressette Room
