This year’s All-College Honors “Last Lecture” – the third in our series – will be given by Mick Cochrane, PhD, professor of English and director of the Creative Writing Program. The idea for this series comes from a lecture by Carnegie-Mellon University Computer Science Professor Randy Pausch, who was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer and gave, literally, the last lecture of his short life. It was his chance to inspire his audience with the experience, wisdom, and humor that he had gathered. Cochrane, an award-winning novelist and coordinator of the Contemporary Writers Series, will give his “Last Lecture” – not literally, of course – tonight at 7:00 p.m. in the Science Hall Commons. All are welcome to attend.  Refreshments will be served.
