Campus intellectual climate is topic of talk, Nov. 7

Revisiting the subject of academic and social life at America's top universities, David Brooks will speak on "You and Your Souls: The Organization Kid Reconsidered," at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7, at Whig Hall Senate Chamber.

Brooks wrote the controversial article "The Organization Kid," published in the Atlantic Monthly in April 2001, which took a critical look at students at Princeton, voicing concern about what he perceived as political apathy, a dearth of intellectual discussion and an excessive interest in resume building.

Brooks is a senior editor at The Weekly Standard and a contributing editor at Newsweek and the Atlantic Monthly.

The event is sponsored by the American Whig-Cliosophic Society .
