April 26 @ 4:30 PM 6:00 PM

You’re invited to a very special Mechanical Engineering event on Tuesday, April 26 at 4:30pm in 1800 E Hall.

Kris Dressler

If you don’t already know him, Kris Dressler is an Assistant Teaching Professor in ME and a delightful human. In fall 2021, he was diagnosed with glioblastoma (GDM), a very aggressive form of brain cancer. On April 26, Kris will be giving a short “lecture” to talk about his new perspective upon re-evaluating life. Kris is particularly interested in reaching freshman students to provide them some insights on the journey ahead of them, but anyone is welcome.

This event is open to everyone, let’s fill the room!


Due to extraordinary interest, we’ve added a livestream option for fans of Dressler who can’t join us here in Madison. Public link to the livestream & recording
