Last night local author, radio host and now, award-winning U-M professor John U. Bacon received the 19th annual Golden Apple Award and delivered his version of a ‘last lecture’. I stopped by to check it out and it was outstanding.
They actually started giving this award when I was on campus, the first going to must-have pysch professor Drew Westen.
I’d offer up some bullets to prove I was there but that might cheapen Bacon’s message. Instead, I’ll offer a slacker’s guide to the lecture takeaways:
- don’t play hockey for coach Bacon
- turn in your papers on time in Bacon’s class
- bring your hat size with you to Montreal
- don’t go in Bo’s office.
Look for the video of the lecture on YouTube soon, or check out the piece in the Michigan Daily today which includes video the speech in two parts:
