Nate Burger, senior in supply chain management systems, was drawn to the Forbes lecture because of the credibility of the name and the political diversity it brought to campus. “I came out because Forbes is a big name and it’s kind of nice to see a big name like that come to Iowa State,” Burger said. “He’s also one of the few big name conservative speakers that get to come to Iowa State. It’s kind of nice to see a more conservative member come to campus.”That’s the power of a YAF lecture. Contact Patrick Coyle at [email protected] to organize a lecture on your campus.
