Why is it a full-day event? Do I have to stay the whole time?

Our full-day program is packed with ideas, stories, and performances by our speakers — but they are just the beginning of the TEDx experience, the rest is up to you. We encourage you to forget about your obligations for this one full day, gain some perspective on your past achievements and future aspirations, have meaningful conversations with motivated people, and think about the ideas that you yourself have to offer the world (perhaps at TEDxCarletonCollege 2014?). However, if you can't commit to 100% of the programming, we still hope you'll come for as much as possible. Did we mention there was food?

Where do I park?

The Ps on the above-right campus map show available parking spots on campus: no permits required. There is also parking in the neighborhood south of campus.
