Throughout our School we have electronic posters with scrolling lists of events and headlines.
I point them out during campus tours as proof of the following claim: there is always something going on at the Bloomberg School.
Thesis defense seminars, special lectures, brown bag lunches, journal club meetings – the list goes on and on.
Some events are bigger than others.
Yesterday was an example of a big event.
There was a town hall discussing the issues surrounding prescription drug abuse. President Bill Clinton opened the event.
Yes, you read that right. President Clinton was here.
I won’t lie. I was a little star struck.
You can read all about it (President Clinton’s visit and the compelling panel that followed – not me being star struck) in today’s web story. A video of the town hall will be posted soon.
