Grad Talks: Passions Worth Sharing

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014
4pm -6pm
Murray Function Room

What are you passionate about? Grad Talks is a graduate student colloquium at Boston College. Inspired by Ted Talks and sponsored by the Office of Graduate Student Life and the GSA, this year's event features ten graduate student speakers from across disciplines at BC. Selected speakers will share particular topics about which they are passionate, whether it be their academic research, an experience abroad, or a life lesson learned. This year's winning presenter, chosen at the conclusion of the evening by a panel of University judges, will receive a $500 honorarium!

This year's Grad Talks, open to the entire university community, will be held in the Murray Function room of the Yawkey Center on Wednesday, April 2 from 4:00-6:00pm, with a reception to follow. We look forward to seeing you there!

Are you looking for a way to connect with other graduate students about your passions in a smaller setting? Check out the GSA's Grad Talks Spark Series. You can apply to facilitate a conversation about your passion at some point during the academic year, or you can join a conversation that someone else has sparked.
