Welcome back to Nassau Hall, Whig-Clio alumni!! Along with the Class of 1976, in celebration of their 40th Reunion, Whig-Clio is excited to host an alumni-student debate on the motion: This House believes the only way to address climate change in the world is through co-leadership with the U.S. and China. Tucker Jones ’16 will speak in favor of the motion and Evan Draim ’16 will speak against it and each will be paired with two alumni experts. Thank you to Josh Libresco, Class of 1976, for working with us to make such a wonderful event happen!
We hope to see you in the Whig Senate Chamber Friday afternoon for a good debate and of course some pounding and hissing. There will also be a cookies platter from Olives!
On Monday, April 25 at 6pm in Whig Hall’s Oakes Lounge, the Whig-Clio Society hosted Robert Daly and 25 invited student attendees for an intimate discussion dinner (with Olives!). Daly discussed U.S.-China relations based on his experiences as a member of the Foreign Service under President Carter and Henry Kissinger, as Director of the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States, and as a CNN commentator on Chinese affairs. Mr. Daly also has experience working in Chinese language television and serving as a Cultural Exchanges Officer at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, providing his perspective a unique cultural lens. Students asked many thoughtful questions and enjoyed engaging with such an interesting speaker as Mr. Daly!
