Consider Yourself (Trigger) Warned: A Conversation with Ramesh Ponnuru
Along with the American Enterprise Institute on Campus and the Princeton Open Campus Coalition, Whig-Clio was pleased to host Princeton / Whig-Clio alum and National Review senior editor Ramesh Ponnuru for a conversation about political correctness on college campuses. The event took place in the Senate Chamber on February 11th and dinner was served for all attendees, thanks to the generosity of AEI.
Ramesh Ponnuru is a senior editor at National Review (and also a contributor for Time and the Washington Post). He has written extensively about political correctness- especially regarding its effect on institutions of higher learning. Ramesh is a major face in American politics, a good friend of the American Enterprise Institute, and an outstanding speaker. It was a great honor to welcome him back to Old Nassau for this event.
