Announcing the 7th Annual North Georgia Student Philosophy Conference

I am very glad to see and share that the Philosophy Student Association of Kennesaw State University is holding their 7th Annual conference April 16 & 17.

I remember organizing the first conference was such an amazing experience. We worked for weeks to set the whole thing up. None of us had even been to a conference before, we had no idea how the show would go. We did have a couple of years of the Mike Ryan Lecture Series to somewhat inform us, and of course we had Dr. Jones guiding us.

For several years we would have vegetarian Chinese food from New Lucky China off of Shallowford Road to cater the event. We would design the flyers, the posters, the name tags, the program, we'd set up the rooms, the lunches, we were really hoping that we'd be good hosts.

We edited and published a selected proceedings, building off of the momentum of the monthly newsletters we also created, eventually this led to the establishment of an online journal, OtherWise (which just recently published its newest issue).

I joke some times that I didn't do well in my classes because they were always getting in the way of my real education that I cultivated with the PSA. Clearly I should have been a better student, but I would never take back those actions. The PSA is first and foremost a Nietzche-loving group and quick to dance and affirm; but also a group that is very seriously committed to developing excellence among themselves and promoting excellence in their community (probably something from Jones' lectures on Confucius and Daoism). What a cool group of people.

Congratulations to the PSA for the years of their hard work and here's to their continued successes.
