10th year celebration of Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture
In 2017-2018 CMU celebrated 10 years since Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture. As one of the co-founders of the program, Randy’s influence can still be found on who we are and how we do things. As part of the celebration, ETC Professor of the Practice, Jesse Schell game a lecture titled “You Can Do More Than You Think”, a phrase he heard Randy use often.
