Student Speaker Event: NASA Colonel Eileen Collins

Presented by the Student Programming Board. Collins will discuss her experience as a female NASA astronaut, pilot, and commander. 

Collins became the first female to pilot a U.S. spacecraft with the Discovery shuttle flight in 1995, and the first female commander on the 1999 Columbia shuttle flight. In 2005 Col. Collins commanded the NASA space shuttle Discovery’s historic “Return to Flight” mission, NASA's first manned flight following the tragic loss of the Columbia space shuttle in 2003. After logging an incredible 872 hours in space while keeping cool under pressure, she now shares how her career as an astronaut took shape. From the importance of working with others to achieve lofty goals to successful leadership in dynamic environments, Collins' perspective will inspire you to embark on your own original journey.

Ticket prices will be $6 for undergrads, $8 for faculty, grads, staff, and $10 for the general public. Doors open at 6:30pm, event at 7pm.
