Ackermann delivers ‘Last Lecture’

first_imgFor students, making service work a high priority can be difficult if cultivating a promising career takes precendence, but professor of finance Carl Ackermann thinks it doesn’t have to be.Ackermann delivered the first talk of this year’s student government-sponsored Last Lecture series Tuesday night in the Coleman-Morse Center lounge. He spoke on his personal growth and service, reflected on his career and encouraged students to put themselves in uncomfortable situations.“The single experience where I learned the most in my life was refereeing soccer games in an ethnically-focused league in Boston,” he said. “In that league, I had to … communicate with the players who often didn’t speak English, often in very heated situations.“So I’ve actually been sworn at in dozens of languages. If you place yourself in unfamiliar situations, … you will mature much faster as a person.“ Amy Ackermann | The Observer Professor of finance Carl Ackermann talks with students following his speech on Tuesday evening in the Last Lecture series.Ackermann said doing service work and appreciating the little things in life go hand-in-hand. He challenged students to maintain their commitments to serving others.“One of the things that I admire most about Notre Dame students is the extraordinary amount of service that all of [them] do … two hours, here and there, fitting it in when possible,” he said. “No matter how tired you are, do the make the extra effort to make at least one person smile every day. You will bring so much joy to others and happiness that will return to you.”Ackermann also encouraged students to learn about nutrition and personal finance, as serving others begins with being able to care for oneself.“By gaining command of your personal finances, you’ll actually be able to use your financial resources to service projects as well,” he said.Ackermann walked into the lecture wearing a horse-head hat. He later explained the decision as a way to engage the audience.“I always try to do something to lighten the mood at the beginning of a talk, so that people will feel like it’s going to be more fun and be more enthusiastic about it,” he said.Ackermann told The Observer he put a lot of thought into crafting his lecture and making it appeal specifically to Notre Dame students.“I think you’ve got three pieces — you talk about how wonderful Notre Dame students are and what you can learn from people individually,” he said. “Then I think they want to hear some suggestions about the future, mostly [about] career[s]. … And then, for me, I think that the defining part of my life, and for so many of the students here, is service, and you have to address that.”Ackermann emphasized the role of service among students as valuable to both their short-term and long-term life goals.“Trying to figure out how you can make the most of that element, I think right now, it takes the form of direct service, but as you acquire professional skills and acumen, you can do a lot more by embracing a leadership or policy role,” he said. “I think [students’] personal desire to do service, as strong as it is now, will only grow as they get older and have more resources and freedom.”The Last Lecture series invites professors to deliver the talk they would give if it were the last in their career, not their actual last lecture. Still, Ackermann, a 2001, 2002 and 2009 Last Lecture veteran, said he plays it cautiously.“When I used to schedule a Last Lecture, I would make sure I had class the next day to make sure it wasn’t the last one.”Tags: Ackermann, finance, Last Lecture, service, Student governmentlast_img read more

Mental illness awareness week begins at SMC

first_imgSupport a Belle, Love a Belle (SABLAB) kicks off Monday at Saint Mary’s, beginning a week of events dedicated to educating students about and offering support for mental illnesses.The Student Government Association Committee of Social Concerns chair Emma Lewis said this week centered around the idea of students helping their fellow classmates face the challenges that come with being diagnosed with a mental illness.“It’s about overcoming the stereotypes and stigmas associated with mental illness,” Lewis said.SABLAB week will open up with a student-led panel of “Brave Belles.” Students participating in the panel will speak about their experiences with mental illness.On Wednesday, the Committee of Social Concerns will host “Positivi-tea,” where students can enjoy tea, cookies and snacks with their peers.Friday is “Playtime with Puppies,” with therapy dogs from The Humane Society coming to Library Green. There will also be a stress relief gift basket raffle at 5 p.m. in the SMC Student Center atrium. Students who attended all events will receive tickets in order to be entered to win, and all proceeds from the raffle will go to the To Write Love On Her Arms Foundation.Saturday is World Suicide Prevention Day and the Le Mans bell tower on campus will be lit up green in support of suicide prevention efforts.The week will conclude Sunday evening with “Sundaes on Sunday.” Students are invited to grab an ice cream sundae from 8:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m in Vander Vennet Theater.Dakota Hartz, a member of the Committee of Social Concerns, said she is excited for the week’s events as it is important to raise awareness about mental illness, especially with its prevalence among college students.“When you are suffering from a mental illness, talking to someone who understand you is so important,” Hartz said. “This week is about getting support from those who understand, rather than being simply told that it’s okay.”Lewis said she is confident that this week will help the Saint Mary’s community grow stronger together.“We hope that during this week, we’ll be able to increase awareness about how these illnesses impact our community and how everyone can be a part of breaking down the stigmas and stereotypes that make living with these illnesses so much more difficult,” Lewis said.Lewis said she is happy that these events provide opportunities for students to ask questions and generate conversations about the mental illnesses that are affecting their fellow classmates.“I genuinely hope that this week can, even in some small way, positively impact the lives of students,” Lewis said.Tags: Committee of Social Concerns, SABLAB, saint mary’s, support a belle love a bellelast_img read more
