President's Listening Tour: Chicago
Alumni, parents, and friends joined President Rebecca Chopp for a conversation about intellectual engagement, support for others, and simply having fun at the College during the Chicago Listening Tour event. President Chopp noted that students at the College are truly supportive of one another, and while that often means engaging in rich intellectual discussions, it also means showing up for soccer matches, theater events, and parlor parties to support their peers in a wide variety of extracurricular activities. Of course, underpinning all of the fun and social engagement lies a deep, enduring tradition of intellectual rigor at the College. President Chopp shared "I've encountered it in conversations with students enthusiastic about their honors seminar discussions and seen it in the faces of faculty members who light up when asked about the experience of teaching at this fine institution."
