We are delighted that Miller Auditorium will host “An Evening with Neil deGrasse Tyson” on March 22, at 7:30 p.m. Tyson is a New York Times bestselling author, host of StarTalk Radio and FOX’s Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey and has been a frequent guest on The Daily Show.

If you would like to be the proud owner of one of these tickets, we ask that you submit a brief essay (300 words or less) telling us why you would like to spend March 22 listening to Neil deGrasse Tyson. Please include your name and WIN on your essay as that information will be required to issue tickets to the winners.
