Ann Curry a University of Oregon graduate (’78) spoke to a crowd of journalism students and alumni on February 28. After the lecture, she took questions from the audience and even found time to get photographed with attendees.
The event was sponsored by the Ruhl Lecture Series and the Ford Alumni Center. Miss Curry spoke for about an hour. During her speech, an active Twitter board was projected overhead that allowed fans to tweet their favorite quotes or share their thoughts in real time.
The popularity of this event will be a tough act to follow for upcoming speakers, but the dedicated alumni association and students will surely succeed in stellar fashion for the next lecture.
