For the first time ever this year, one in eight participants at the SEGD Conference will be a student!
SEGD is already experiencing record membership highs, and this influx of student members just adds to the wave of excitement building in the organization in anticipation of the conference June 4-6 in Chicago.
Feeling thirsty and adventurous? After all, your evenings are your own at the SEGD Conference, so why not take advantage?
In the spirit of entropy, and an urge to explore (did someone say xplore?), I present to you a few random (but really fun-sounding) ideas for your albeit limited free time during the 2015 SEGD Conference:

“Design is about process and community, not products.”
Tanner Woodford, co-founder of the Chicago Design Museum and one of Newcity’s Annual Design 50 for 2015, is an irrepressible cheerleader for his city and its design heritage. He says design is about process and community, not products. And he wants to share a few Second City secrets you probably don't know yet. Tanner will open the 2015 SEGD Conference: Experience ChicagoJune 4-6. Join him there!
Co-working spaces are popping up all over the world, social and creative hubs for people who want to get out of their basements and into a professional workspace but don’t want to take on the costs of rent and equipment on their own. And like 1871 in Chicago, they have also become important creative hubs and business incubators.
Chicago—Earlier today, John Lutz nearly announced his candidacy to assumed billions of Internet viewers and his purported Facebook friends: “My name is John Lutz and I’m announcing my candidacy because I’m #goingsomewhere”. An elderly relative was reported as saying, “I’m glad he’s going somewhere. I’d like my basement back.”
