Professors present a 'Last Lecture'

April 20, 2012

Albert, Carl to provide lecture

Based on Carnegie Mellon University Professor Randy Pausch's inspirational book, The Last Lecture, professors Lumina Albert, one of this year's Best Teacher recipients and professor within the College of Business, and Carl Patton from the Department of Physics are doing CSU a great service in delivering their version of a last lecture.

The event will be held at 5 p.m. April 26, 2012, in Lory Student Center room 211E. Both professors will address students with the topic, “What would you want to tell students if this were your last lecture?”

Lectures seek to inspire

The Last Lecture is a novel written by Pausch, a professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. During his time at Carnegie Mellon, Pausch contracted terminal pancreatic cancer, and as a last service to his students, gave a final lecture titled “Achieving Your Childhood Dreams,” which has been described as both powerful and upbeat.
