On November 3, a group of Rockford University students, accompanied by CEE Professor Shawn Klein, took a trip to the Students for Liberty Chicago Regional Conference. The day-long event featured tremendous speakers (including two-time CEE guest speaker Alexei Marcoux), panels, and breakout sessions on the ideas behind a free society and the actions necessary to implement them.
