Heard on Campus: Christopher Gardner

"When someone tells you you can't, you gotta know that they're saying they can't do that. You gotta dream, you gotta want something. So get it. Period."

-- Christopher Gardner, author of the best-selling autobiography "The Pursuit of Happyness" and associate producer of the subsequent major motion picture of the same name, speaking on Sept. 21 in Penn State's Schwab Auditorium to an audience of several hundred students and community members. Gardner was the first speaker in this year's Distinguished Speaker Series. For more information about the series, go to http://www.spa.psu.edu/dss.html.
