US Ambassador visits our Hallowed Halls

The Honorable Gregory Slayon talks to a captivated Brotherhood

Last Thursday, May 5, the brothers of Kappa Kappa Kappa were honored to host The Honorable Gregory W. Slayton. Professor Slayton currently teaches at Tuck Business School, and previously has worked as a venture capitalist, Silicon Valley CEO, orphanage operator, and U.S. Chief of Mission to Bermuda. Needless to say, everybody was very excited to hear from such an accomplished individual.

During the talk, Professor Slayton discussed a wide variety of topics--anything brothers wanted to know about, from the world of finance to his thoughts on marriage, faith, and raising a family. It was a very special opportunity to hear one of the most prolific men at Dartmouth speak frankly and openly.

Following the discussion was an informal meet-and-greet with Professor Slayton. After Professor Slayton left, brothers continued to hang out and discuss the talk, reflecting the extent to which he got us thinking.

So thank you, Professor Slayton, for a truly memorable discussion. It was a privilege for all of us at 1 Webster.

Yours in Kappa,
Dan Fox '13
