StuGov Buzz: StuGov preparing for second TEDx conference

The second annual TEDxTrumanStateUniversity Conference is a little over a month away. The conference will be held on Sunday, Nov. 10 in the Student Union Building Georgian rooms. The first session will run from 1-2:45 p.m., and the second session will run from 3-4:45 p.m. Each session will feature three talks, activities related to the presentations, an interactive Q&A period with the speakers and light refreshments. The theme this year is “Relativity.” Speakers have been selected across a wide variety of disciplines and departments ranging from chemistry to sociology. 

Ticket reservations for both sessions are free of charge and can be made in the Student Government Office on the bottom floor of the SUB from Oct. 21-25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Digital reservations will be available online in limited quantities from Oct. 28 to Nov. 1. Per TED rules, only 100 tickets are available per session, so it is highly encouraged that you reserve your ticket as soon as possible.
