Admitted Students Weekend – Recap

Date: Mar 27, 2015 to Mar 28, 2015
Speakers : Professor Sarah Harding, Professor Steven Heyman

This weekend was our Admitted Students Weekend!  Thank you to everyone who came and participated in the various events – it was a great weekend.

Friday Reception

On Friday, we had a Wine and Cheese Reception in the 10th floor event space.  I really like the reception because it is a great way for admitted students, current students, and professors to meet and mingle in an informal and casual setting.  It also doesn’t hurt that wine and cheese are involved (two of my favorite things).

Saturday Events

On Saturday, we had a more structured event that included a panel discussion with current students, mini-classes, and a student life fair.  Although the day starts pretty early for a Saturday, breakfast (and lunch) was catered by Panera, which always seems to be a fan favorite.

The mini-classes were taught by Professor Heyman and Professor Harding.  Professor Heyman’s mini-class was entitled How Far Should the Right to Free Speech Extend?  The Westboro Baptist Church, Funeral Picketing, and the First Amendment and Professor Harding taught a property class entitled Foxes, Baseballs, and Viruses: A Brief Discussion of the Most Important Feud in the History of American Property Law.

Both classes were heavily attended, and admitted students seemed to really enjoy the subject matter.  We had a great turnout on both Friday and Saturday, so thank you again to everyone who visited Chicago-Kent.  I also need to give a special shout-out to all the student volunteers who gave up their Saturday to participate and make the Admitted Students Weekend a success!

Upcoming Events

Also, keep in mind that this is not the last opportunity for admitted students to visit the school.  We have Small Group Visits on certain Fridays this spring and a Dean’s Program on Monday, May 4, 2015 from 5:30-8:00pm.
