And now a list of five Public Affairs Conference sessions we think students would be pretty interested in. All you have to do is bring yourself, your friends, and join the fun!
Moving about campus is something many of you do on a daily basis, so why not join a group of friends and take a walk to Jillian Michaels’ keynote address? The fun starts at Jordan Valley Park in downtown Springfield at 6 p.m., and you’ll receive reserved seats for the Michaels event.
Plus, the benefits of walking are many:
- Increases heart rate
- Increases blood flow
- Tones muscles
- Helps digestion
- Releases stress
- Improves mood
Social media play a role in all of our lives. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are mainstays, and new platforms are developing and gaining traction every day. Many of you may have a role in developing accounts for businesses after graduation. This session will help you uncover a mindset to utilize those accounts for the greater good, and provide your audiences with content they need and enjoy.
Plus, you’ll get to hear from the CEO of Askinosie Chocolate and the senior adviser to the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. If you can make time from 9-10:15 a.m. on Wednesday, you’ll want to make your way to Plaster Student Union for this session.
The Affordable Care Act continues to be a controversial topic in the political sphere, but seems to be here to stay in some form for the foreseeable future. Still, millions of United States citizens remain uninsured and millions more are in medical debt collection.
You will help shape the future of health care decisions, and the time is now to gather as much knowledge on the topic as you can.
The description on the Public Affairs website says it all: More than 1,000 suicides occur on college campuses each year, and you’ll see more than 1,000 flags planted north of Plaster Student Union to raise awareness of this important issue.
This event will serve to remember those who have been affected by death by suicide, and you can personalize a flag at the North Mall.
The Field of Memories should be visually stunning and a reminder that we all have a responsibility to help friends and family who may be in crisis.
The conference will close on a fun note with Show-Me Chefs demonstrating how to prepare meals in a way students are familiar: The microwave.
How do you eat well on a limited budget? You’ll see the answers in-person as local chefs and MSU’s newly hired executive chef deliver some delicious options in the PSU Theater.
