Society of Skeptics: 2018-2019

To help kick off the beginning of the school year on, Tuesday, September 18th at 7:00 pm,, at the CIC, we will be having our first Society of Skeptics! For those who don’t know what Society of Skeptics is, it is a weekly lecture series for students and faculty covering important global issues and events through the lens of a public speaker. This helps students and faculty broaden their perspectives and knowledge about that particular issue. Additionally, students are highly encouraged to ask questions and express their opinions.

This week’s speaker is Chris Wolfe (‘85), a Blair trustee and parent. He is a former equities trader who now works for Merrill Lynch wealth management. He will be discussing his personal recollections of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
