The Cross Cultural Center is introducing a new discussion series called #WhatsTrendingSLU. This casual lunchtime series gives students an opportunity to participate in hot topic discussions on current events, sociopolitical issues, and pop culture that are trending in social media and in the news. Example discussions can include discussion on conflicts in Syria and Egypt to the viral reaction of Miley Cyrus' performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. Intent on making this a student-centered experience, we will utilize social media to poll students on the topic of each discussion. The series will be held every 2nd and 4th Thursday in the CGC Student Common Think Pods unless otherwise noted.
