College is a unique period of time that inherently opens up an environment in which students can be immersed in learning, whether they are enrolled full-time or part-time. A key component of learning and being a well-rounded person is to become and remain engaged in the immense world around you. We are offering you several avenues through which you can learn more about what is happening in the world, which can help you to become even more well-rounded and may also assist you to determine your future direction for your major, your career, and even your life focus.
Join us as we gather to watch and consider short talks from TED (technology, education, design), a clearinghouse of free knowledge. You will see and hear from some of the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers. Topics including technology, entertainment, design, business, science, and global issues are discussed by those with innovative and creative perspectives. The information just might prove to you that the power of ideas can change attitudes and lives. Join the group to learn new information on a variety of topics. We invite you to stay afterward for an informal and brief discussion about the topic. You are encouraged to share new thoughts, questions, and experiences with the group. We learn together. We learn from each other. We learn to keep learning. This will be a group experience that may broaden your world view and possibly tantalize your curiosity for more on each subject. Join us each week for ʺTED Talk Tuesday” at 12:30 pm in the Donaghey Student Center (DSC), room D or G. All are welcome. Please consult our workshop calendar.
This calendar presents some free and low-cost opportunities to stay engaged at UALR and in our surrounding community. This is not an exhaustive list of all such options in the Little Rock area. Please use this calendar as a way to enhance your educational and cultural experiences while at UALR. Many opportunities of this nature exist no matter where we live, we only need to look for them. For some of these events, there will be an opportunity to meet with SSS staff and other SSS students to attend as a group. Such opportunities will be sent to the SSS listserve.
Please feel free to share this calendar with your friends and other community members.
