Passions Worth Sharing
Grad Talks is a graduate student colloquium at Boston College. Inspired by Ted Talks and sponsored by the Office of Graduate Student Life, University Libraries, & GSA, this event features up to 15 graduate students from any discipline at BC. At Grad Talks we ask students to present about a particular topic about which they are passionate, whether it be academic research, an experience abroad, a lesson learned through a life event, or anything else! Each talk lasts either 7 or 15 minutes and is presented in a manner understandable to those without expertise in that field.
2013 was the inaugural year for Grad Talks, and we were pleased to present 9 speakers who shared their passions on Friday, April 5th in the O'Neill Library Reading Room. We look forward to seeing you at Grad Talks in 2014!
