Rocky Talks: Spring Edition
Inspired by the popular TED Talk series, Rocky Talks is an event sponsored by Rockefeller College which aims to showcase the creative talent here at Princeton and disseminate thought-provoking messages to a broader audience. Taking place during Princeton Preview, the spring Rocky Talks will be April 12 from 5 - 6 pm in the Rocky/Mathey Theater, with an appetizer reception to follow.
The event will feature VERY short (~10 minute) talks from selected students covering a variety of subjects. Interested in giving a talk? Watch your email for the application, or contact RGS D.J. Bozym, firstname.lastname@example.org. We encourage students from all classes to apply! While you may want to propose a talk on your thesis research or a project that you have undertaken, remember that these are not meant to be academic presentations; we also welcome proposals for talks about non-academic passions.
The first Rocky Talks was held in Fall 2012, and featured four inspiring speakers:
- Ye Eun (Charlotte) Chun '16 | Paradigms of achievement mentality: When quantity trumps quality
- Paul Popescu '14 | The casualties of modern communication
- Michael Lachanski '14 | To serve the people
- Catharine Bellinger '13 | How to start up, drop out (maybe), and get by in the real world: Launching a startup at Princeton
The fall Rocky Talks are available for viewing on You Tube.
