Welcome and The ART of Social Excellence (7:30 pm - 8:45 pm)

Join NGLA and Phired Up for our opening session!

Art! The art of human connection. Some people call it desire, intrigue, fascination, x-factor, or being a “people person.” But, we’re all “people people” and we all desire human connection. And we all have the capability to connect with others in our own ways. Good news. Being social is a skill. It can be learned, practiced, and mastered. We’ll show you!

The Social Excellence Series is hosted by Phired Up.


Affinity Spaces (9:00 pm - 11:00 pm)

Available for LGBTQIA+ Folx as well as Persons of Color. 

Conference attendees are welcome to visit the dedicated affinity space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community as well as persons of color.

Students are encouraged to attend; professionals, presenters, and sponsors are also welcome!


Text Breakers (9:00 pm - 11:00 pm)

Text Breakers has been performing their college game show for over 10 years and it works perfectly live or virtually.

Text Breakers has performed over 120 virtual shows since the start of COVID and students keep asking for more. You’ll love the game show buzzers used in the live show and it’s easy to text in answers for the virtual show. Text Breakers includes games like trivia, drawing, acting, and more. It’s a blast for everyone and will be for you, too!

Face Fears | Become Resilient | Unlock Potential presented by Joze Piranian

Joze Piranian avoided speaking almost entirely because of his debilitating stutter. But after struggling for 25 years, he broke free from his challenges to become a celebrated TEDx speaker and stand-up comedian. Joze now inspires people to turn their fear into action so that they can overcome their “inner stutter” and unlock their true potential. Drawing from his personal journey, Joze Piranian’s program instructs participants how to confront challenges, build unshakeable resilience, defeat the discomfort of learning new skills, and reframe their relationship with fear.
