My idea of a good time: going to a lecture about architecture.

One of the challenges an architecture school faces each year is securing enough dazzling personalities to formulate an interesting lecture series. This fall, I think my school did quite well! A couple have already passed, but I'm really looking forward to the rest....

Chris Luebkeman should be especially cool....he works for the internationally renowned engineering firm Ove Arup, and his title is Director of Global Foresight & Innovation. I want to grow up and have a fantastic job title like that! But first I must graduate from grad school......
