Drew Lachey is a celebrity primarily known for being in the boy band group, 98 Degrees with his brother, Nick Lachey, the dude that once was married to Jessica Simpson. He is also known for being the champion of the second season of Dancing with the Stars. St. Thomas is a school known for its law, seminary, and MBA programs. Worlds will collide when Lachey visits the campus.

During the lecture, titled "98 Degrees and Rising: Following Your Dreams on the Path to Success," Lachey will expound on his career, which, whether you're a fan or not, has indeed been successful. In addition to winning the second season of Dancing, he has traveled with the related dance tour. Also of note, he managed to escape his stint on Hollywood Squares, moving on to host the Miss U.S.A. pageant, performing in the Broadway company of Monty Python's Spamalot, and the musical Rent.

St. Thomas' O'Shaughnessy Education Center (2115 Summit Ave., St. Paul) will host the event, which is scheduled for Tuesday, March 31 with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are free. For more info, check out
