Faculty & Participants "I could not have been more pleased with every aspect of Exploring Libertarian Perspectives. The format, speakers, and accommodations were all wonderful.

"I had a wonderful time at the Intermediate Liberty & Society Seminar and surprised myself in learning all that I did in such a short amount of time. The seminar gave me an opportunity to share, contrast, and discuss many insights, and I feel that it was this communication that I really benefited from. In Syracuse, I've felt very isolated with my ideas, and for one whole week I had very friendly, intelligent, and concerned people to share with."

-- Tracey Strobel, B.A., English, Syracuse University
