Inspired by TED Talks and sponsored by the Office of Graduate Student Life and the GSA, this colloquium features up to eight graduate students from any discipline at BC. Selected speakers present a talk between seven and ten minutes in length on 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! The winning presenter, as selected by a panel of University judges, will receive a $500 honorarium!  For questions or more info, please email
