SEAS Class Day Speaker Announced
Written by Bwog Staff
It’s official! SEAS Dean Galil brings good tidings of the engineering school’s class day speaker in the latest Zvi-mail, as follows:
It is with great enthusiasm that I share with you the following news. This year’s Class Day speaker will be the world famous architect/civil-engineer/artist Santiago Calatrava. He has designed the Transportation Hub that is being built in lower Manahattan, the Athens Olympic Stadium and dozens of marvelous bridges and buildings all over the world. Last year the Met had an exhibition of his works of art (paintings/sculptures/pottery/design).
If you want to learn more, Google him.
Dean Galil has picked quite the man for his final class day speaker at Columbia. Bwog has done the Googling for you, and it looks like Calatrava is big enough to have an official website and unofficial website, so take your pick.
Seems like he’s bound to be a hit with SEAS students — perhaps he can do the rest of the university community a favor and fix Lerner while he’s at it.
