Think BIG, Wesleyan: Professor Speakers Announced

Hannah Vogel ’13 writes in to let y’all know about an opportunity to start thinkin’ big, especially if you haven’t started already doing so this year. Tell your Mom, tell your roommate, tell your friends:

No slides. No handouts. No Moodle. Just the most exciting professors at Wesleyan, talking about the ideas they can’t stop thinking about. You nominated your favorite professors earlier this semester. Now, five of those professors have been brought together to deliver nine-minute lectures on a topic that excites and inspires them for the second-ever Wesleyan Thinks Big!

    Will these be uploaded afterwards? I want to hear Gil Skill talk about how we’re going to go to class in our flying cars.

      Yes! We’ll have people recording and the videos will go up on our site. It took some time to get them edited last year, so keep checking back. I’ll see if I can get a Wesleying post up when we’re done with them.
