There was a lot of time spent introducing. I understand that people have a lot of successes, but when you list 500 of them, you forget all the ones in the middle. The speeches made reference to other people a lot, and I wanted to hear more about what the speaker thought personally. He was a very good speaker, though. Very funny and personable. I just wanted to hear more about his own experiences.

It was a delightful evening from start to finish. The 3 minute presentations were interesting, the musicians fabulous and Dr. Skorton was, as usual, entertaining and insightful.

Very informative. I especially enjoyed the exchange between Dr. Keller and Dr. Skorton.

I thought it was vapid and full of platitudes about the glories of graduate education. Considering that the Graduate College has been systematically undermining the quality of such education at the UI, the self-congratulatory tone of Dean Keller was hard to swallow. I always admired David Skorton, but he seems to have become a consummate bureaucrat. I thought perhaps he would take on some of the issues that are starkly important for such institutions as the Smithsonian under the Trump administration, but not a word. And considering all that, the lack of a Q&A with the audience was a serious problem.

Very uplifting presentation. So incredibly professional and articulate (not a surprise). Perfect complement to the graduate student 3-minute presentations and jazz performance. The Q & A was also great!
Wonderful evening.

This event was a gift from the University to faculty, staff and community members welcoming David Skorton back and hearing his views and wisdom. The after lecture dialogue was especially enjoyable, and the student presentations were inspiring.

The concert itself was great, but I know a lot of people couldn't get into the building. I arrived at 6:25pm and my friends and I were among the last to get seats. I think you should have planned this event better in terms of assigning seats. But the show was awesome
