TEDx Cushing 2017 (updated)

Update! The recorded talks from our TEDx conference are now available. Enjoy!

Once again, Cushing’s student-run TEDx event was a wonderful success and a huge achievement for all involved. This year’s speakers focused on the theme “Growing Pains” and shared their ideas through the use of personal stories, research, and images.
Cushing's TEDx was streamed live from Cowell Chapel on Sunday, Apr. 2, 2017. If you missed it, you'll find links to the recorded talks next to each speaker's name.
Many thanks to this year's organizer, Yashi Thakurani ’18, the many individuals behind the scenes, and of course our speakers.
