What is Symposium?

Every spring, Gordon College devotes one Thursday, all day long, with NO classes, and the classroom is turned over to YOU, the student body. This is your opportunity to present your senior thesis, lead a discussion with your peers, create a work of art, assemble a panel of experts on a topic for your club, or create an event through your student organization. This is a day meant for you, as the student body, to reverse the direction of the classroom and share what you have to say!

When is CFI Symposium?

This year the CFI Symposium will be held over two days! The keynote lecture will be held on April 13th at 4:30 p.m. while student events will take place all day on Thursday, April 20th.

How do I get involved?

Get together your student organization, club, classmates, and friends, or go solo and put together a 40-50 minute event that will be advertised on campus and open to all. Apply by March 31st and you will hear back with acceptance or further questions on your proposed event. Every event should be oriented around this year's theme, but we welcome out-of-the-box thinking to connect your ideas with this overarching theme.
