Refreshing religious conversation


Thumbs up to the recent Mendenhall lecture featuring New York Times columnist Samuel Freedman.
Focusing his lecture on religion and its impact on the presidential election, we found it refreshing to see DePauw incorporate the religious aspect in the international conversation of who will be our next national leader.
The Mendenhall lecture is known for its prestigious speakers, and we weren't disappointed. While students may not have agreed with some of his points regarding candidates publicizing their religious beliefs, the fact that he introduced a new conversation to campus was appreciated.
