Penn State Speaker Forum Lineup Announced

Word to the wise — don’t wait till commencement to hear a good speaker on campus. There are so many different speakers who come to Happy Valley throughout the year that I feel confident saying there is something for everyone.

The schedule of the 2013-2014 Forum Speaker Series has been announced, promising interesting perspectives on many different topics. Not all of the names are easily recognizable but that shouldn’t prevent you from spending an hour and a half hearing from these accomplished individuals.

The luncheons, which include a presentation and Q & A session, run from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at either the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel or the Nittany Lion Inn. Tickets are $19 each and include a buffet lunch. To purchase the tickets, head to room 103 of the HUB-Robeson Center.

Here is the 2013-2014 schedule, announced on Penn State News.

Sept. 5: Majora Carter, urban revitalization strategy consultant and Peabody-award winning broadcaster

Sept. 13: Pedro Noguera, New York University professor of education

Oct. 4: Victoria Browning Wyeth, lecturer on the art of the Wyeth family
