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.
