Student Government Distinguished Speaker: A Conversation with Anderson Cooper
Student Government is excited to welcome Anderson Cooper as this year's distinguished speaker in a moderated conversation at Brick City Homecoming & Family Weekend.

Whether recounting his probing of would-be leaders of the free world at a presidential debate or his experiences reporting from the front lines of natural disasters and brutal conflicts around the globe, Cooper shares the heady view from this front row seat to history.
Since the start of his career in 1992, Cooper has worked in more than 40 countries and has covered nearly all major news events around the world, often reporting from the scene. At CNN and 60 Minutes, Cooper has won a number of major journalism awards. He helped lead CNN's Peabody Award winning coverage of Hurricane Katrina and DuPont award winning coverage of the 2004 tsunami off the coast of Indonesia.
