This lecture was very informative, and accessible to everyone in the audience - from the children to the professionals. Very good job!

Very nice to see Oscar on campus sharing his views on the latest and future technology trends. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

The student discussion with Oscar Salazar was engaging and valuable. I learned about artificial intelligence and found it interesting to hear what he thinks the future of technology looks like. It was interesting to hear from someone who started with nothing and has pioneered what we now consider to be the norm for transportation.

They should start a fund so all the players have Santa hats. Biggest crowd I have seen in a number of times going.

Every afternoon my child left the Latin Summer Camp enthusiastically sharing what they did that day. The teachers were great, and the Friday performance was a special treat!

I think this was an event created with the best of intentions. It was, unfortunately, hijacked by people in the audience who had an agenda that had nothing to do with this event and everything to do with the President who happened to be there. It was most unfortunate and uncomfortable. I felt terrible for all of the committee members. It was very bad form for our elected officials and those seeking election to use this forum to make a point and then get up and walk out. As a voter, I will remember that rudeness during the upcoming election.
I anticipated this to be a time to learn more about the events that were part of Just Living, and there were many. I think that was the intent but there was less time to make than happen than should have been the case. Thanks for a great effort and I'm sorry it did not turn out as hoped.
