Last Lecture
The Last Lecture, styled after the book of the same name by Randy Pausch, offers a member of the MBC community the opportunity to imagine it is his last chance to speak with students on a topic that is not necessarily related to his field of study but rather is used to share wisdom and reflect about what he has learned throughout his life. This year’s lecturer is Associate Professor of Biology Eric Jones. A treasured tradition at MBC for the past 19 years, the Last Lecture is sponsored by the Student Government Association. 12:15 p.m., Francis Auditorium.
