This month's KPC Word on Campus

If you could invite anyone (from throughout history, alive or deceased) to have lunch, who would it be, and why?

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

If I could invite anyone that ever lived to lunch, it would be Thomas Jefferson. Because as one of the founders of liberty in terms of the constitution, I would love to talk to him about his ideals and what led to his contributions.

– Brandon Echols, AES

Associate of Applied Science, Process Technology

I would invite Fyodor Dostoyevsky, so we could talk about his books and his thoughts and experiences as a human.

– Timothy Alsobrooks, KRC

Bachelor of Arts, Anthropology

Eleanor Roosevelt – She was before her time. ‘Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.’

– Dixie Hart, KBC

Non-Degree Seeking

If I could have lunch with anyone, it would be Louis C.K. I think he is hilarious and far more brilliant than anyone gives him credit for. And I think that the lunch would be filled with gluttony and laughs and just an amazing afternoon!

– Amber Sweetland, KRC

Bachelor of Arts, Dietetics, Minor Business

Albert Einstein – he is my favorite scientific figure. I would want to talk about his work.

– Adam Poss, KBC

Associate of Arts

If I could invite one person to have lunch with, it would be my great-grandfather Routzen. But not old, youthful, so he could carry out the task of conversation. Maybe he would teach me something about life or something about his history/adventures.

– Lucas Reyes, KBC

Non-Degree Seeking

I'd like to have lunch with Robin Williams because he was so funny and he pretty much changed everybody's life. From the first movie that I saw--Mrs. Doubtfire--he taught me that it doesn't matter what you look like, what you say, what you do; anyone can reach their dreams.

– Rachel Bon, KRC

Bachelor of Arts, Elementary Education

Nikola Tesla. I would ask him about his experiences working with Thomas Edison and later teaming with George Westinghouse as a competitor in the development of the best system of long-distance power distribution, the modern AC electrical system. I am impressed by his intelligence, persistence and dedication to his work.
