Western announces Blister Speaker Series

Western announces Blister Speaker Series

The guests will deliver a keynote address and hold a question and answer session, followed by refreshments. They also will spend two days on campus, visiting classes and interacting with student clubs and sports teams.

The keynotes will be video- and audio-recorded, to be released on Western’s YouTube account and Blister’s podcast.

Speakers are to visit on the last Thursday of each month. Keynote addresses will be held in the University Center Theater at 6 p.m.
