I enjoyed it. A different type of venue for me, but worth the time.

Scott Fried was an excellent speaker and advocate for the AIDS/HIV awareness movement program. His speech was deeply moving and inspired a newfound passion for life. His performance as an intermediary and friend was remarkably beautiful. Much more than a mere advocate, Mr. Fried created an atmosophere where everyone is valued and deemed important even during times of personal hardship, a lasting empathy much needed in today's society.

Was excited to sign up for new clubs, but was kind of disappointed that there wasnt a table for one of the clubs I was hoping to join: Goucher Democrats.

Entertaining guy, but it kind of dragged on for a bit too long.
