Tuesday marks the start of this year’s ALS Student Symposium. This year’s theme is fear. The ALS student committee’s goal is to get students thinking about how fear is present in society and ourselves through a variety of perspectives.
The committee reviewed the ideas, and then moved quickly through the parliamentary procedure of approving themes for the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 academic years, said Lauren Hohbein, ALS student chair.
The themes selected were Creative Life and Food.
While specific angles for these themes haven’t been developed, the 2012-2013 theme Fear is well under way and will has undergone restructuring.
“We’re moving along really well,” Hohbein said.
