It’s late August, which means it’s time for Johns Hopkins to announce the speakers for its annual MSE Symposium. The student-run speaker series always brings an interesting cross-section of famous folks, including everyone from Jerry Springer to Malcolm Gladwell to Will Ferrell to speak for free at the school. This year’s slate of speakers is eclectic, as usual.

This year’s theme is Learning From Experience: The Path Ahead for Generation Y. The speakers include:

Aron Ralston (September 17, 7 PM) – The guy who got trapped in a canyon and cut his own arm off to escape; he was played by James Franco in the 2010 movie 127 Hours, which was based on Ralston’s best-selling book.
