    No more tickets are available for Wednesday’s on-campus appearance of actor Ben Stein, said event coordinators. The event, which is free, is open to the public with reservations, said Mark Murtagh, coordinator of the Fogelson Honors Forum. However, reservations are no longer being taken because the venue is full, said Murtagh, a senior political science major.

    The eighth annual Fogelson Honors Forum is sponsored by the TCU Honors Program, Murtagh said. Each year, the Honors Program brings a speaker who represents modern American culture to campus, he said.

    Stein was chosen because he appeals to the student body as well as the Fort Worth community, Murtagh said.

    The topic of Stein’s lecture is unknown, although it will probably be similar to his inspirational speeches at other universities, Murtagh said.

    Stein was told about the TCU mission statement, he said.

    “He’ll likely talk about how to be active citizens in the community, through the mission statement,” Murtagh said.

    Stein is scheduled to speak 8 p.m. Wednesday in Ed Landreth Hall Auditorium. Those in attendance will have a chance to ask questions.
