A quick reminder:
CSPS is hosting its third annual leadership tour of the Gettysburg battlefield on Saturday, October 14th. This all-day event is free of charge and open to all Schar School students (friends & family are welcome too). If you're interested in history, decision-making, strategy or civil-military relations, this tour is for you. It's also a great opportunity for first-year students to meet one another outside of the classroom!
Please note that there is a mandatory preparatory lecture before the actual trip. We will post the lecture online for those who can't attend either of the prep sessions in person.
