On November 12th, CUSA Director Richard Matthew will be participating in the latest TEDx event at UC Irvine entitled, GO. The event is a collaboration with International Education Week, and all involved hope to share the profound effect that stepping outside of our individual boxes can reveal. GO explores not only the results of studying abroad, but also the thought processes that preludes such a reward. What do we feel, when we make the decision to leave our friends, family, and culture behind to explore a lifestyle weve only ever read or heard about? When we GO, we are actively deciding to accept the challenge to understand, explore, and better ourselves as human beings. Going shows us how small of a space we occupy in the world and with that understanding comes the power to do more. GO invites you to turn your thoughts into reality and your plans into actions. Studying abroad and immersing yourself in an unfamiliar culture will give you unforgettable memories, stories you cant wait share, and lessons you will apply for the rest of your life.
Doors open at 5:00pm with the formal program start time of 6:00pm. We encourage you to arrive before the formal program to take the opportunity to network with all the other participants and get the full TEDxperience. Parking is most conveniently located at the Student Center Parking Structure.
