Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was the keynote speaker for a Utah State University conference sponsored by the Department of Political Science. The keynote address (see links below) was one of many appearances made during his time on campus. Students, faculty, staff, administrators and members of the public met with Justice Scalia during multiple activities.

A highlight of a Sunday evening dinner at the president’s home featured music by USU’s professional string quartet in residence, the Fry Street Quartet.
Monday’s schedule was packed, but an appearance by the justice in a political science classroom before a small group of students, was among the highlights.
Scalia was on campus to open the conference “Freedom and the Rule of Law,” a two-day event that featured 10 nationally recognized political scientists and scholars. The Taggart Student Center was filled with an overflow crowd of 1,700 that spilled from the Stevenson Ballroom to the satellite areas of the Sunburst Lounge and TSC Auditorium, where video screens showcased the ballroom and speaker.
Following the keynote address, Scalia met with another invited group, including conference presenters, for a luncheon.
