Michael Moore is a very busy man these days — but Carnegie Mellon's Activities Board Lecture Series is part of his packed schedule.
You heard correctly. Moore will be speaking at the University on October 6 at 4:30 pm on the lawn in front of Hamerschlag Hall. His lecture will run between 60 to 90 minutes and will focus on the topic of "youth votership, the current political climate, and various other topics," according to the Activities Board (AB).
Tickets are not required for the lecture, except in the event of rain, in which case the lecture will be moved to the Carnegie Music Hall at 4400 Forbes Avenue. No bags will be allowed inside the rain site, and flash photography will only be permitted during the first five minutes of the lecture.
Tickets to the event are free. They become available today, Tuesday, September 28, from 8 am to 12:30 pm in the University Center's Connan Room. After 12:30, remaining tickets will be distributed at the UC Info Desk. On October 4, tickets will be made available to the general public at the UC Info Desk starting at 8:00 am. One ticket is allowed per Carnegie Mellon ID.
There is a lot of anticipation for this event, but students have mixed opinions. Many liberal students support Moore's cause and his appearance on campus.
Adam Schloss, a freshman in MCS, said, "I think it's high time that someone has given the left a voice. Although some may think he's crazy, people still listen to him."
Others do not feel so favorably toward Moore. Kevin Anderson, a freshman in CIT, said, "Michael Moore is extremely counterproductive to the causes he tries to support. Although I enjoy his movies and books, you have to realize that they are extremely manipulative and do more harm than good."
Arrangements for the event were made through Greater Talent Network, Inc. This lecture is sponsored by AB Lectures and AB Tech.
