X Marks Your Calendars
This week at Xavier has been quiet. Maybe the students are being extra good since they know the Easter Bunny is on its way. Or maybe it’s because of the snowy weather during the spring season. Whatever the case, fear not for the future. Mark an “X” on your calendars for these on-campus events happening within the next couple months.
Southern Ohio District Export Council and Xavier co-sponsor Hot Market Watch
Thursday, April 4 in the Cintas Center
7:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Whether your business is large or small, it’s always a good idea to think globally. The seventh annual international trade conference, hosted by Xavier, provides a full day of speakers and workshops and focuses on selling to India, Indonesia, Russia and South Korea. The conference also details market updates, tools and resources for U.S. companies interested in selling or expanding into these countries. Registration costs $90 and includes parking, breakfast and lunch.
Tedx Xavier University
Wednesday, April 17 in the Cintas Center Banquet Room
1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
As people look online for high-quality, easily digestible information, TED talks—short, informative and inspiring speeches—become more and more popular. The TED talk event, originally created 26 years ago in California, is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue. TEDx is the same thing, only it’s focused on a more local level of dialogue. Xavier’s TEDx event, which is open to the public, includes presentations by locally based CEOs, authors, professors and creative thinkers. Tickets run $25. Register here.
Neon Trees and Owl City Live at the Cintas Center
Sunday, April 14
6:30 p.m.-10:00 p.m.
This April, performing artists Owl City and Neon Trees are headlining Xavier’s spring concert at the Cintas Center. So even if the snow continues into the spring, it won’t matter all that much because indoor concerts rule. Or, as Owl City’s front man Adam Young puts it, “it’s always a good time.” The concert is open for the community and public to attend, and tickets are now on sale for Xavier students ($20-25) and the general public ($35). Find them at www.ticketmaster.com or at the Cintas Center ticket office.
