Mu Chapter Lectureship Committee with speaker Lisa Ling
This semester has really flown by, and our blogging hasn't been too timely! No worries we are back and ready to bring you up to date with Mu Chapter!
On Wednesday, September 16 journalist Lisa Ling was Delta Gamma's special guest and speaker for Mu Chapter's Delta Gamma Foundation Lectureship in Value and Ethics. Ling, a leading female journalist in the US, spoke about her experiences as a reporter for National Geographic, Channel One, The View, The Oprah Show, and CNN. Ling spoke to timely world issues and the need for American's to challenge their views about the world.
Besides speaking to the campus in a presentation at Jesse Hall, Ling also spent time at the chapter house, eating dinner with collegians and talking to members individually at a dessert reception. The chapter was honored to have Ling as a guest and truly was privileged to take part in such a great evening.
Also a special thanks to Breanna Hance (08) for all her help with Lectureship, get ready for her to take over and bring another amazing speaker to campus next year!
