4 p.m., November 26, Emens Auditorium
Distinguished Ball State alumnus Dave Letterman, host of CBS's Late Show returned to campus this year to host media icon and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey. The conversation is part of the David Letterman Distinguished Professional Lecture and Workshop Series, established in 2008.
More than 3,300 members of the Ball State community--mostly students--packed Emens Auditorium to attend Dave+Oprah. Audience members received T-shirts commemorating the event. The response for the Dave+Oprah conversation was so overwhelming the university opened Pruis Hall and the Student Center Ballroom for audiences to watch the event via a live telecast.
The conversation was inspired and unforgettable, as Oprah spoke extensively about overcoming abuse and hardships in her life to become successful. Dave said of Oprah's story, "This human experience of yours is stunning."
