Well Said is officially a club on campus
The first meeting is THIS WEEK – Wednesday May 24, 1:15-2:30 p.m. in Kulshan Conference Room 226
Coffee and cookies will be provided.
Well Said will be a club with two simple aims:
1. Have conversations and build relationships across differences – Meet people who don’t see the world the way that you do and allow yourself to be impacted by what they have to say. Ask questions yourself. Learn to understand and value them as individuals and not merely as arguments
2. An objective discussion on some of life’s key issues – A safe place to wrestle with our doubt and skepticism.
See the Facebook page @WellSaidWords. Check out the Well Said blog and let us know what you think.
