The CBD Student Group is composed 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:
Welcome to the Memory Palace
The Gut-Brain Connection
Life Without Words
The Art of Slime Mold
The State of Psychedelic Research
Reason, Morality, and Progress

As one student said: "It is so helpful just to have an organized group of students with related interests...The group opens students up to new ideas and ranges of study, and also offers them membership in a group where they can ask questions and get advice."
