President Schapiro discusses priorities, first impressions and a few of his favorite things in an online chat with students.October 5, 2009 | by Matt Paolelli
To kick off his busy weekend of inauguration activities, President Morton Schapiro spent time fielding a wide range of questions from his favorite constituents: Northwestern students.
The Northwestern Class Alliance hosted the LiveWired online chat with President Schapiro from the informal setting of the Starbucks at Norris University Center. About 50 students attended the event, while hundreds more students, alumni and parents logged in online to watch a live video feed of the chat and contribute questions in real time.
Several of the remaining inauguration events, including the academic symposia Friday at 9 and 10:30 a.m. and the inauguration ceremony at 3 p.m., will be streaming online as well. For more information and to register for these Web events, visit http://www.NUInauguralEvents-LIVE.com.
