Looking back: Circle Meetings February
February’s circle meetings were once again comprised of an impeccable range of topics. Groups of fellows flocked to the circle meetings to discuss mediocrity vs. achievement, the political ramifications of Sochi, the responsibilities of the university system, and, as always, a plethora of emergent minitopics borne out of sudden interest. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all the hosts and topic providers for making this happen!
