2pm - 4pm
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 event features up to ten graduate students from any discipline at BC. Selected speakers 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 seven to ten minutes and is presented in a manner understandable to those without expertise in that field.
The application for speakers is now closed. Our lineup of speakers will be announced soon. Ten candidates will be selected to present at Grad Talks, and the winning presenter, chosen at the conclusion of the main event 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 yoru 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.
