"Earlham TeD" Club

Great minds discuss ideas. “Earlham TeD” is a brand-new club on our campus that will give the students and faculty members an opportunity to share their ideas and thoughts worth spreading. “Earlham TeD” is the Earlham version of the famous TED (an event devoted to sharing powerful and groundbreaking talks). This club, however, is not only about organizing an event and being a speaker, it has much more to offer, including weekly gatherings for relaxation, sharing interesting thoughts, gaining new speaking and organizing skills, and all the great things that appear once you are surrounded by motivating people and ideas. If you have a couple of spare moments, come to the CoLab on January 19, at 4:00 p.m to learn more details. In case you have questions, you can email Edita Danielyan, edanie16@earlham.edu.
