Sotomayor Speaks on Campus Oct. 22
Arcadia University is pleased to announce U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will visit campus on October 22 at 7 p.m.
Justice Sotomayor’s My Beloved World was selected as summer reading for all incoming first-year and transfer students entering Arcadia in fall 2013. The book recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench, a journey that offers an inspiring testament to her own extraordinary determination and the power of believing in oneself.

Those who do not receive a ticket may attend a live-streaming of the lecture in Stiteler Auditorium. Seating for the live-stream will be first-come, first-served.
