IC Welcomes Visitors to Campus

Written by Fuse Staff

Claire Gleitman, professor and chair of the Department of English, interviews the pulitzer prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner in Hoerner Theater.

Most big-name professionals give a public speech or performance when they visit campus, but often they’ll meet with students one-on-one or in small groups or classes. Here are a few who came to IC last semester.

David Muir ’95, ABC News anchor Muir delivered this year’s commencement speech, telling grads, “You don’t need a camera or a microphone to have a voice. I know you already have one. I’m simply here to urge you to use it.

Tony Kushner, Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright and author of Angels in America Kushner discussed his work in a public forum and met with honors students who had studied his play.



Branford Marsalis, Grammy Award–winning saxophonist Marsalis gave an exclusive performance to a filled Ford Hall in the Whalen Center for Music, followed by a master class with a group of enthusiastic music students.



Karl Ravech ’87, host of Baseball Tonight Ravech was one of 13 IC alumni and current employees of ESPN who returned to campus for a panel discussion about their experiences with the network. Ravech also took time to meet with aspiring sports journalists and critique their clip reels.
