- Location: Morgan Hall 109
- Description: The College of Arts and Sciences Student Council presents the “Last Lecture”
presentation on Thursday, November 7th at 7 p.m. in Morgan Hall 109.
Dr. Boris Petacovici, Associate Professor of Mathematics, will present his "Last Lecture" titled, "Lifelong Lessons: What Learning Math Taught Me, and What I Learned from Teaching Math"
The Last Lecture presentation will provide an informal occasion for Professor
Petracovici to share reflections from his life's journey and to speak to students as if it was his last lecture ever. The concept of a "Last Lecture" became nationally recognized in 2007 with Dr. Randy Pausch, who gave his "Last Lecture" speech on September 18, 2007 at Carnegie Mellon University. Since Dr. Pausch’s presentation, the “last lecture” concept has been popularized and offered on college campuses throughout the U.S.
