This was one of my favorite events at BGSU to date! As a speaker Dr. Harris-Perry was interesting, funny and very informative. She really kept the crowd interested in what she was presenting. I really enjoyed the breaks in the presentation to allow the audiance to process and well breathe. She made good points and left me with things to consider.

This was by far one of the best speakers BGSU has hosted since I started in 2017. Even one of my professors said that in her 20 years, this was one of the best. So thank you for hosting her and thanks to her for coming.

I feel like this is a better event to come to already with other people rather than hoping to meet other people once you're there, since its sitting down and playing board games.

I appreciated that he was playing out in the Union so listeners could enjoy from anywhere and so that he had more of an audience. I also thought that putting the whole "coffee house" setup out was a clever idea. Unfortunately, he was performing during the times that I have class, so I was only able to briefly stop in. I definitely think this was better-suited as a daytime event, but that does add in the conflicting factor of classes.

I thought it was fun--there were a lot of great materials provided for the canvas art, the playlist was a bop, and I thought the wall of break-ups was a cute idea. A good lil' V-Day event.
