FELIPE, PRINCE OF ASTURIAS, the Crown Prince of Spain, and LETIZIA, PRINCESS OF ASTURIAS, paid a visit to campus Thursday, Nov. 14. They were greeted at the top of the Oval by Provost JOHN ETCHEMENDY; JEFF WACHTEL, senior assistant to the president; and SCOTTY MCLENNAN, dean for religious life.

Following a brief tour of Memorial Church, the delegation met JEREMY BAILENSON, associate professor of communication and director of the Virtual Human Interaction Lab. They toured the lab and got a demonstration of its work.

The delegation then proceeded to Wallenberg Hall for an informal lunch with a group of about 50 students who are from Spain.
