The Student Activities Office will be hosting a weekly TED Talk Series this spring in the new Student Life Center!

Join your Student Activities department and fellow students every Thursday at 1pm on the 3rd floor of the Student Life Center (S307) to sip caffeinated beverages, watch selected Ted Talks (www.ted.com) and after, stay for some enlightening (or just plain silly) conversations.

This week's talk: 

Dave Meslin: The antidote to apathy - Local politics — schools, zoning, council elections — hit us where we live. So why don't more of us actually get involved? Is it apathy? Dave Meslin says no. He identifies 7 barriers that keep us from taking part in our communities, even when we truly care.

Ben Rigby: Micro-Volunteering....Giving Back for Busy People - In a unique approach to voluntarism, Ben Rigbyhas taken the time element out of doing good works. For the past 15 years, he has focused his efforts on developing youth-focused Web and mobile phone software.
