Good Morning:

I recently saw a bumper sticker that proclaimed: "I'm retired, don't ask me anything." Well, I can assure you that I am not retired yet and really want you to ask me anything and everything you can about Tulane in preparation for my annual Town Hall Meeting. The Town Hall Meeting will take place Friday, Oct. 4, from 10:30-11:30 a.m. in Dixon Hall. Please email me your questions on academics, athletics, finances, facilities, research - you name it. I will address these questions and those from the audience.

We will also be live blogging from the Town Hall. So follow online if you can't make it to Dixon Hall. In my 16 years as president, the Town Hall has been one of my favorite events. I have been honored by the large turnout and challenged (but not yet stumped!) by the many questions. Your queries always reflect how much you cherish our university's past and care about its future.

The Town Hall is also part of Homecoming and Family Weekend, one of my favorite times of year. You can learn all about the food, concerts, fireworks, reunions, exhibitions, lectures, the big game and everything that makes Homecoming special on the website.

Have a great weekend (and don't forget your questions),


Office of the President Emeritus, 1555 Poydras St, Suite 700, New Orleans, LA 70112 504-274-3638
