Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright came to Syracuse University to talk about the current political climate in Washington and share stories from her career. Albright served as secretary of state from 1997-2001. She talked about the dangers of being a diplomat in the Foreign Service and the worst day she experienced as secretary of state.


Even before the doors opened for students to find a seat to see Secretary of State Hillary Clinton speak at Syracuse University Monday morning, a line began to form. Over the next couple of hours, it kept growing as a sturdy column of students, faculty, and community members stretched through campus in the cold rain.
