  • College Students-Conference?

    I know that a lot of us on are college students, so I am asking for your opinions. At my college and also at some other local ones, we've been thinking about and exploring the concept of having a conference for other Indian student organizations. So...

    Have any of your colleges ever had conferences w/ other colleges and universities? What types of speakers/activities/workshops would you want to happen at a conference you would attend?

    My university is definately supportive of a conference if it were to happen. I'm just curious what you would want the purpose of the conference to be (besides just getting together and partying lol).

    Thanks for any ideas!!

    It would be interesting and I bet you would get a lot of response if you addressed Native issues, or problems/obsticles in the business-life of an Indian after college. I know some assertive seminars/workshops would benefit lots of native people or maybe seminars on different areas of business fields, professions, keeping culture, maybe even tribal government. Almost like a UNITY Conference ......... but funner!

    Whatever the seminars are and as long as they are directed to future Native professionals, it would benefit everyone for future business contacts.

        I am currently vice president at my college and what we are trying to do is get together with other colleges inthe area to get together and meet to exchange differnt ideas on getting student involvement rasing money mainly for our yearly powwow and other events...... unfortunaly i have to insist that you make sure you get student involvement...... i say this because at my college we have very poor involvement as it goes to getting things set up....everybody wants things but does not want to help getting set up.... evene wiht our student council our president as well as myself were appointed to the positions ( i would have ran against the current pres but i was suppose to transferr to a different college).... and when things do get done we have ahard time getting ppl there it usually is just the same ppl and i is the ppl that never show up tha tusually complan about things not happening but we are constantly doing different things....but yea (kinda got off topic) i would say to make sure you will get strong student involve ment
        i am not as mean as I look just really protective..... Family is the centre of the world

          As many of you probably know, I am a student in his second year of college. One of my credit requirements is a history course where from day one, we began discussing pre-Columbian America.

          There, I got a good earful of such historic gyms as:

          Well today I offically got down pretty close to my weight and body fat percentage and called my recruiter. I've set up a time to do the ASVAB in a few weeks, and then paperwork, and on to MEPS from there. So I've still got a lot of time to get well under my weight/body fat percentage.

          by Calista2015
          Forget I even asked, some people here seem to have such attitudes when asking about how to practice Native American spirituality. Why ask? Because one GENERALLY does not know. I wasn't being racist or racially bias, I was telling of the experience I came upon, upon hearing from a group called Hebrew...
