The Dalai Lama visits the U of MN

May 8, 2011 - 11:24 pm -


So this is pretty unique, today the Dalai Lama visited and spoke at the U of MN and were told he drew quite a crowd. His speaking arrangement was held at Mariucci Arena and people waited outside in the rain to get in. Above he is pictured with U’s president-designate Eric Kaler and below he is welcomed by Provost Tom Sullivan. Anyway, some may say he doesn’t qualify as a celebrity, but he is cool with us!


Side note — For his appearance, he was given an honorary degree. Damn, this is such a sweet deal for celebrities … Be famous + Visit College = Free Degree
