Martin Sexton will blow your mind.
held a super fun event last Tuesday. I hope some of you got out because it was a great time. Over 100 Laurentian students gathered at Peddlers Pub in downtown Sudbury to watch the American election and of course indulge in some FREE WINGS. I munched on a complimentary pound of honey garlic and watch Obama get re-elected. Looking forward to MODEL PARLIAMENT coming up in January…signups and money (150$ for 3 days in Ottawa) are due at the end of November! Come on out, everyone is welcome!
I hope you had a fantastic and relaxing yet studious reading week!
These are all outstanding. Speaking from personal experience, the Benjamin Zander video is one of my absolute favorite TED talks. Here are three videos from the list:
- Benjamin Zander on music and passion: If you want your kids to fall in love with music, Ben Zander is your best friend. In this video, the very funny and energetic speaker and conductor of the Boston Philharmonic discusses classical music and why everyone should love it as much as he does.
- Jamie Oliver’s TED Prize wish: Teach every child about food: In this clip, “the naked chef” exhorts for change to the standard American diet and speaks about his fight against obesity. Don’t worry, he’s clothed the entire time.
- Arthur Benjamin does “Mathemagic”: Arthur Benjamin is a human computing machine. In this talk, Benjamin displays his amazing ability to calculate figures in his head, then he tells you how he does it. This is about as entertaining as math gets.
I had tons of fun volunteering yesterday in support of the International Day of the Girl! Check out the link and I’ll post the video!
Welcome to the student blog hub! Here you will find Laurentian students from a variety of programs blogging about their experiences as students. Here you will see what students actually do outside of school work. Our bloggers write about whatever interests them, not what we tell them they should be interested in.
These bloggers come from different backgrounds and have different interests – you are sure to find at least one blogger who suits you. Our bloggers are more than happy to help you out with any questions or comments you have – they remember what it was like to be in your position as a future student.
