Spring break is over and now it is time for the students of Wright State University to hit the books for another ten weeks. The week break never seems long enough compared to the six week break we get between the fall and winter quarters, but what is nice is that it is a “break”. We don’t have tests or homework to worry about or work on, just selling back books and buying new ones with that money. So watch out, Colonel Glenn Highway is going to be busier this week than it was last week due to students frantically driving to campus to get to class on time. We’ll try not to cause too many problems.
We are starting the quarter out strong with two speakers next week as a part of the WSU: Presidential Lecture Series. On Wednesday April 7 at 7:00 pm, Mr. Greg Mortenson will be speaking in the Apollo Room in the Student Union. Mr. Mortenson is the co-author of Three Cups of Tea One Man’s Mission to Promote Peace…One School at a Time. This book was the chosen text for the 2009 Common Text Program that is offered here at WSU for incoming freshman students. Then Friday April 9, Mr. Frans Johansson (author of The Medici Effect) will be speaking in the Apollo room in the Student Union at 9:15 am. Mr. Johansson’s bestseller book has been translated into 17 different languages and explores innovation through diversity. His speeches have been known to be exciting and an inspiration to all. With so much diversity amongst us all today, what a beneficial speech to attend! All events are posted free and open to the public unless posted otherwise!
