“I have great memories of Brandeis. It is where I met many of my closest friends and my wife! When the opportunity to volunteer presented itself, it was an easy decision. As club president, I have enjoyed meeting new people, reconnecting with old friends and interviewing prospective freshmen. It has been great sharing my enthusiasm for Brandeis with others.”

She spoke about the nature and limits of free expression, set against the context of recent international incidents. We may all be Charlie now, but we also abhor hateful speech. The New York Times was criticized for self-censorship by not publishing the Charlie cartoons. The editors said they were trying not to be needlessly provocative. Who's right? Is there a middle path?
