Details on the 9/4 Event

Malala Yousafzai's Monday, September 4 Ubben Lecture at DePauw University will include a section of the program where questions which have been submitted will be presented to the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize winner and U.N. Messenger of Peace.  If you have something you'd like to ask Malala, send your queries to ubbenquestions@depauw.edu.

Student journalists from each of DePauw's three media outlets will choose and ask the questions at the program, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. in DePauw's Neal Fieldhouse, which is located within the Lilly Physical Education and Recreation Center (702 S. College Avenue). Like all Ubben Lectures, the event is presented free of admission charge and is open to everyone. Seating will be general admission (tickets will not be distributed). 

As announced Wednesday, doors will open to students with valid DePauw IDs at 5:45 p.m., while all other guests -- alumni, faculty, staff and the general public -- can enter Neal Fieldhouse beginning at 6 p.m.

The program, which is free and open to all, begins at 7:30 p.m.  No tickets are required, and seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
