I was disappointed as I believe the event description was not presented in a clear and accurate way. I did not realize that this was a fundraiser event for a specific organization. Arianna Huffington was a speaker towards the end of the...continued

Not what we were expecting. It was not a lecture on current events. It was a fundraiser.

I didn't realize that thiswas not specifically an Arianna Huffington event. It was sponsored by Insight University Youth Leadership and was honoring Arianna for her contribution. So, she only spoke for about 20 minutes. But, it was still a...continued

This event should have been billed for what it was - an award ceremony given by Insight Univ. The first hour was giving out awards; not the noted speaker. That being said, Ms. Huffington had an interesting, but short speach. I'm glad I did not...continued

While the event included a charity awards part that we were not aware of, Arianna Huffington's talk was articulate and inspiring.

Arianna was fantastic! I didn't realize that in addition to her intelligence, she is extremely witty!

I think Goldstar should have been more up front in stating that her appearance was in conjunction with Insight University. There was a lot...continued

This event wasn't what I thought it was going to be about.
We got there, and the event started off with a short film about,
INSIGHT, a leadership organization for children.
I thought it was going to be an evening with Arianna speaking.
Nope,...continued

Maybe Arianna Huffington spoke, but before her appearance there were an awful lot of 'inspirational' speeches, music, a rap performance, accolades, testimonials, etc. for a youth empowerment program which 'spread the love.' Finally, we gave up...continued

Royce Hall was difficult to get to and we got lost around UCLA campus due to insufficient signage and the students we asked (5 of them at different locations) did not know where Royce Hall was.

That being said, there was a prolonged program by...continued

Arianna Huffington was great! I thoroughly enjoyed hearing her speak concerning education, politics, etc., I would have enjoyed it better if more of the time was devoted towards hearing her speak instead of the additional speakers, topics, etc. ...continued

I did not know what Insight University was or what this event was all about. I just thought that i was going to hear A. Huffington. And I did. She was very good, inspirational and thought provoking.

The event was an educational benefit that was heartwarming and well presented. It ended with Arianna's presentation, which was great. She shared a lot of personal information with the audience that she used to inform, amuse, and inspire.

I absolutely LOVED seeing Arianna Huffington speak at Royce Hall.
There is only one thing that I did not like about it, but being that I live in Los Angeles, I was prepared for it.
The parking at UCLA for Royce Hall events is EXPENSIVE!!
The...continued

I purchased tickets based on Goldstar's description, which was very misleading. The description said that the event would be produced by Insight University and include opening remarks. However, the event was awards ceremony for Insight...continued
