Think Out Loud

From Becca Seidel’15 & Danielle Pruitt ’15:

 Ideas never stop brewing under Wesleyan’s surface. In carrels, on stages, and around the world,students are constantly creating new things and re-conceptualizing the world. But rarely as students do we get the opportunity to showcase the journeys we take to get to these moments of creativity and clarity.

Think Out Loud is a platform for students to showcase projects they are passionate about or ideas they are pursuing. For one hour on Friday, April 24th @ the DFC seven Wesleyan students will take the stage. Think TED Talks, but more interactive. Check out the line up after the jump.  Light reception to follow the show!
