Wish Dr. Westover took it more seriously.
Tara was so wonderful! Like...I want to be best friends with her. :)
I really enjoyed it, awesome opportunity!
Extremely enjoyable and insightful.
This was a wonderful event.
The talk was great. I was moved to the overflow seating, which unfortunately was having volume problems for a while. Overall, Tara was very interesting to listen to and it was an awesome opportunity after reading the common read this summer.
Tara was a great speaker but I was disappointed a little in the UD side. The questions felt staged, as they kind of were, and the provost and speakers seemed unauthentic. I wish that Ms. Westover had just been allowed to present and speak without predetermined questions and fake enthusiasm.
Probably more faculty/staff/community members in attendance than first year students - wish they'd secured a larger space. But really good.
