Mark Hartley will present a lecture titled “If I Knew Then What I Know Now…” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21 in the Branigin Room of the Napolitan Center as part of Franklin College’s 2013-14 Convocation Lecture Series.
Hartley authored the book series called “If I Knew Then What I Know Now…” Many colleges, including Franklin College, have used the series in their orientation programs. Hartley encourages students, especially new students, to stay motivated and driven throughout their college years. He hopes that all students will be open to the many lessons they can learn while in college.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
Each year, the college hosts the lecture series based on one of its five core values – respect, honesty, responsibility, faith and lifelong pursuit of learning. This year’s focus is on honesty.
