MONDAY: Southern University President Dr. Ronald Mason; and Author Kevin Kwan

President of Southern University Dr. Ronald Mason joins us in studio for the better of Monday's show to discuss the recent merger proposal of the operations of the Southern University System with the Baton Rouge campus, as well as the proposal to consolidate the positions of system President with Chancellor for the Baton Rouge campus. They discuss how Dr. Mason is handling all of this on top of an uneasy and upset faculty which argues that Southern University has an enrollment problem, not a structural problem.

Also, author Kevin Kwan joins us to close out the show and discuss his debut novel: Crazy Rich Asians. The comedic novel centers around three very wealthy, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season.
