Preet Bharara, the former United States Attorney for the Southern district of New York, spoke to a packed Great Hall on Tuesday night, April 6—or as he put it—“improbably [addressed] a captive audience in a legendary hall where Abraham Lincoln once spoke.” The “sold out” event was part of the 2017 John Jay Iselin Memorial Lecture Series, which commemorates the tenth president of The Cooper Union.
ReCooperate was a weekend-long interdisciplinary event hosted by
Professor Eric Lima, Ruchi Patel (ChE ‘18), and Irisa Llana (Arch ‘21). There were structured activities hosted by student groups as well as free time to socialize with students and faculty.
