Stolberg is a political features writer and former White House correspondent. She’ll give attendees a peek at Washington behind the scenes, from life inside the Capitol to the White House and the raucous presidential campaign of 2012. Prior to covering politics, Stolberg was a science reporter, writing about bioethics, bioterrorism, the quest for an artificial heart and the controversy over embryonic stem cell research. Join her as she shares her fascinating journey as a journalist.
Speaking to the College Topics Blog about her upcoming speech, Stolberg said: “I have done many things in my lifetime. I’ve met with presidents and other heads of state, traveled on Air Force One, toured the world, lunched with senators. But the idea of walking into the Rotunda and addressing my classmates takes my breath away.”
The CDAA hopes to see many Cavalier Daily alumni at its reception and Ms. Stolberg’s presentation!
