Tucker Center 2017 Fall Distinguished Lecture
Wednesday, October 18, 2017, 7:00-9:00pm Cowles Auditorium, Hubert H. Humphrey Center University of Minnesota West Bank Campus
About the Lecture
As a long-standing tradition of the University of Minnesota, student groups across campus are annually granted permission to paint the interior panels of the Washington Avenue Bridge to advertise their groups and publicize their respective group philosophies. However, for the past two years, conservative groups’ panels were defaced and vandalized. This year, panels of the College Republicans, Turning Point USA and the Minnesota Republic were defaced with various messages denouncing the original messages on the panels.
