Michael Beschloss, Presidential Character: The X-Factor - LIB 100/201 APPROVED!

Date and Time

7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.


  • Eberhard Center » 215-All


What qualities make a candidate presidential material? What qualities make an ideal president? From Washington to Trump, the President of the United States requires certain qualities and quirks to be great. With a presidential election just sixteen months away, the United States has begun to shift focus back to the office of the president, and their collective hopes for America’s future.

Continuing our Character and the Presidency series, the Hauenstein Center is proud to announce this year’s event, in partnership with the Peter F. Secchia Family Foundation, Meijer Foundation, Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum & Library, and Ford Foundation. Named “the nation’s leading presidential historian,” by Newsweek, Michael Beschloss will present his wealth of knowledge on the most coveted office in the United States, giving us a glimpse inside the walls of the White House, and the qualities it takes to lead it, and us.

P.S – If you are interested in contributing more to the discussion of qualities and the presidency, please join Beth Buelow in room TBD at 8:30 PM for light refreshments and a rousing roundtable forum to share your thoughts.

Free and open to the public, registration required. Click here to RSVP.
