University sophomore
Robyn Naigles, hearing The
Simpsons producer Mike
Reiss speak March 16 was about more
than just a behind-the-scenes look at
the popular television show.
Naigles, who is from West
Bloomfield, said she felt Reiss' pres-

campus," Tatum said, adding that she
looks forward to working with Hillel
again in the future.
"I think the more we can make stu-
dents aware we support them, that we
