Beyond dorm life, some of the most memorable experiences for me involved seeing cool people in person - I'm talking about Chris Hughes, President Obama and J.B. Bernstein. In 2011, President Obama made a stop at Reynolds Coliseum to deliver a speech in support of the American Jobs Act. That was an experience like none before. I had to miss a class to stand in a long line at the Brickyard for a ticket and run to another class to take an exam just a half-hour after the president's speech (more on that here). On to Hughes, most noted for being a co-founder of Facebook, who appeared at Stewart Theater on campus in 2012 to give an interesting lecture on why we should invest in media considered to be "old and outdated" (more on that here). Finally, I was able to see - and meet - J.B. Bernstein when he stopped by the new Talley Student Union shortly before I graduated. Bernstein is the man for which Million Dollar Arm is about.
