This November, be part of the discussion.
If you are looking for inspiration, encouragement and the opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas, join in and
“Be Part of the Discussion,” designed to provide you with these opportunities in a fun and casual venue outside of the classroom.
The event uses TEDTalk (www.TED.com), which, according to its website, is a “non-profit organization that is devoted to ideas worth spreading, and offers free-to-view videos that show speeches from the world’s most inspired thinkers.”
You can join TEDTalk on Nov. 2, 17 and 30, view videos and then participate in an exchange of ideas.
On Nov. 2, you can look forward to listening to the author of the award-winning blog, 1000 Awesome Things, and New-York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awesome, Neil Pasricha. He will reveal the three secrets to leading a life that is awesome – attitude, awareness and authenticity.
Pasricha encourages you to “bring out your inner three-year-old,” “face the future with sober eyes,” and to “be yourself, and be cool with it.”
The discussion is facilitated by Matthew Maguire, Student Life programmer.
Maguire said the “Be Part of the Discussion” is a new initiative that was created by the Student Life department in order to provide students with an opportunity to meet new people, discuss abstract concepts such as leadership and communities, and find ways to either get more involved with activities at the college or improve the campus atmosphere.
If you have any questions, you can contact Maguire at firstname.lastname@example.org or 519-748-5220, ext. 2494.
