The CBD Student Group is a gathering of students from all five schools (and at all levels of study) who are passionate about their work and interested in exploring questions from new perspectives. The group meets weekly during term time to address hot topics in culture, brain/mind, and human development. We watch TED talks, host guest speakers (often ourselves!), read and discuss articles, and organize field trips, film screenings, and events.
The CBD Student Group is informal, open to all, and you can drop in any time. We also serve a delicious dinner, with vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. No pizza! CEL-1 credit is also available.
Examples of Student Group programs include:
Curiosity and Ethics
Is Language Unique to Humans?
Humans Make Art!
Welcome to the Memory Palace
The Gut-Brain Connection
Life Without Words
The Art of Slime Mold
Psychedelics and Mysticism
Reason, Morality, and Progress
For meeting dates, location and times, check the Daily Digest, like the CBD Facebook page, or add your name to the CBD student email and you'll get all the details. We welcome open-minded students from all areas of study!
Here's what one student had to say about CBD Student Group:
The CBD Student Group has been a welcoming space to explore a variety of topics, from bitcoin to brains to juggling, and how they intersect and interact with one another, allowing me to look at the world from a different and refreshed perspective and expand my horizons.
