News at Noon Spring 2011 Schedule

NEWS AT NOON

An American Democracy Project Program


News at Noon is a forum for faculty and student discussions about current events. Each monthly discussion is lead by a faculty expert. Living in a democracy carries the responsibility of being an informed citizen. Join friends and faculty members on three Wednesdays this fall to consider how current events are presented in the media. Stop by the College Readership Newspaper bins, swipe your ID, and grab a NY Times to bring with you!
