This expansive 16-story structure at the heart of the DeKalb campus, contains the university bookstore, a full-service hotel, various dining facilities and meeting spaces and Ellington’s, a student-run restaurant experience.
Dr. Franz gave a very informative presentation that was eerily relative to some of the issues we see in America today. The insight presented on how a democratic process can relieve the population of their democratic rights, effectively tearing down the legal structures that protect a population from individuals that have nefarious power hungry intents, should sound an alarm in all democratic minded individuals in the population. It screams to the importance of citizens taking part in electing your government officials before they are left shaking their fists in the streets trying to win back their freedoms in futility.
The data simply proves that you can vote yourself out of freedom and that the only way to earn it back is through the violence of civil war.
I had a great time at the diveristy ball! It was nice to meet university leaders and network with people who all come from a unique background. I look forward to this becoming a regular event on campus and having as many students as we can come to this annual event.
