“Darin Strauss spent several days at Arkansas State University as part of our Honors Lecture of the Year.  Darin is unique in that he is able to connect with a larger audience and is also great one-on-one.  He bonded with students on a personal level and really became a part of our Honors family during the time he was here.  Darin’s message resonated with our students and we would highly recommend him to other institutions.” -Rebecca Oliver, Director of the Honors College, Arkansas State University
