Saxe Opens Last Lecture Series Tuesday

Dr. Allan Saxe

Political Science professor Dr. Allan Saxe says he’s not ready to retire, but his appearance in the inaugural Last Lecture Series gives him a chance to tell students what he might say.

The free Last Lecture Series is at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 29, in the Lone Star Auditorium at the Maverick Activities Center.

The series is based on inspirational Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch, who died after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He gave his last lecture at the university in 2007.

For the Last Lecture Series, a faculty member is asked, “If this were your last time to address a group of students, what would you say to them?”

Dr. Saxe, an associate professor of political science and community philanthropist, says his true last lecture is five or more years away.

Omicron Delta Kappa, a leadership scholastic honor society, sponsors the Last Lecture Series.
