Kenneth Starr To Speak At Penn State

If you don’t have anything to do in two hours or so (7 PM), you should go hit up Kenneth Starr‘s “I got President Clinton in trouble a lot” Tour. It’s not really called that, but seriously, He’s speaking at 7 PM in the auditorium of the Katz Building, that lonely building on the other side of Park Ave. He’ll be talking about “Law in the Age of Obama” because I guess law changed on January 20th.

Currently, Starr is the Dean at Pepperdine Law School in Malibu, California. He is best known for writing the Starr Report, which investigated President Clinton’s numerous lapses of judgement, leading to his impeachment. More recently than that, Starr represented the Juneau, Alaska School Board in Morse v. Frederick, the trial about the legality of the suspension of a student for actions committed off campus. In this case, Joseph Frederick unfurled a banner that said,”Bong Hits 4 Jesus” as the Olympic Torch passed through Juneau in 2002. Starr won that case.

The speech is being presented by the Penn State Federalist Society, the Speaker’s Trust, the Student Bar Association, and Young America’s Foundation.

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
