Bounce Back

Student Call for Programs

Looking for a great way to “Bounce Back” into the new year? 

How about showcasing your experience or expertise as a student presenter at the 4th Annual Owl Professional Development Conference February 4-5, 2021! This event is a two-day virtual motivational conference and is open to all students.  

This year’s theme is Bounce Back: Building Resiliency in Your Career. If you have a story of resiliency you’d like to share in a 15-minute TED Talk-style presentation, we’ve love to hear from you! 

Some sample topics could include:  

  • Success in the virtual learning environment / virtual internships and co-ops 
  • Navigating the job and internship search 
  • Overcoming obstacles/bouncing back 
  • Advice for other students (“I wish I would have known…”) 
  • Adapting to the college environment as an adult learner or non-traditional student 
  • Tips on how to excel in a NACE Career Readiness Competency 
  • Life lessons you’ve learned at KSU 
  • And more! 

Sign up to present individually or as a group, but be sure to submit your presentation proposal by January 14th.  

Do you have questions about doing a student presentation? Contact Allie Wright Johnson at Remember, even if you don’t want to present, we encourage you to attend the conference. Reserve your spot for just $5! Learn more and sign up now!
