Posted by Peter Bremer on Thursday, Feb. 7, 2013

Come discuss gun violence in the United States at Asking the Big Questions on Tuesday, February 12th at 7:00pm in the Briggs Library McGinnis Room.

Speakers will include Ron Hensinger from Campus Police, Henry Fulda from Student Counseling and Solomon Gashaw from the Sociology discipline.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Light snacks and refreshments will be served. The event is co-sponsored by Briggs Library and the Sociology discipline. Asking the Big Questions is a campus/community discussion group that focuses on important issues facing society and the world.
