So there's that.
|Nothing much happened|
The vegetarian sandwich provided by the college was pretty good.
Attendance was so-so. Coulda been worse.
During the hour that I attended, the folks on the panel seemed preoccupied with the issue of campus safety. There was much talk about earthquake preparedness and "active shooter" countermeasures. (The "big one" is gonna happen, I know. On the other hand, the chances of encountering an "active shooter" at the college are likely lower than the chances of being hit by lightning--or finding a literate administrator in A100.)
VP Linda F (she has a doctorate in "education" with a special emphasis on "cookies and punch") yammered like she does about the many and various ways that the campus is addressing student populations that don't do well, academically. (No groups were mentioned by name.) We've been snagging grant money, she said. Big bucks. (She did mention the amount, natch. Over a mil.)
The student government kid seemed pretty sharp. Panelists seemed to fear him. ("Good God, what will he say next! Can't anyone control him!") —RB
