Dalai Lama Visit, October 21, 2010
About 11,750 Miami students, employees and regional community members heard the Oct. 21 afternoon lecture of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama at Miami University. Of those, 10,450 heard him in person at Millett Hall and about 1,300 saw it at streamed large-screen venues at Hall, Finkelman, Parrish and Voice of America auditoriums.
Another 530 attended a small morning program at Hall Auditorium, during which the Dalai Lama received welcomes and awards, and received presentations on the progress Miami's Armstrong Interactive Media Studies (AIMS) program has made on at least three projects for the Tibetan people. These include a virtual mandala, for which His Holiness donned 3-D glasses.
