What a difference a year makes. Heidelberg’s Berg Enactus chapter is moving onto national competition in May after the group’s first-ever regional win in Chicago earlier this month.

We have vacancies we simply can’t fill fast enough with qualified candidates.”

Dr. Jeremi Suri’s message to students Thursday was part history lesson, part call to action.

Suri, who traveled to Heidelberg from the University of Texas at Austin, where he is a history professor and global affairs scholar, gave the Minds@Work keynote Thursday. Using his most recent book, The Impossible Presidency, as the framework for his talk, Suri argues that the successful presidents of the past created unrealistic expectations for every president since JFK. And, the resulting problems for American politics are huge.
