Posted by Tim on March 30, 2021 in Event, Student experience

April 2 – 8 – 9 p.m. Join Student Engagement for a night of wonder with a virtual Mind Reading event with Christopher Carter! Christopher Carter has been named entertainer of the year by Campus Activities Magazine, and he has appeared at over three thousand college campuses. What he does is hard to describe. He’s been called the world’s greatest mind reader. But he’s not psychic. He has no special powers. He’s just in the business of freaking people out. 
Students and staff will experience an interactive “mind-reading” demonstration, followed by Christopher teaching them some of the skills he uses to pull it off. Viewers will also learn about advanced memory techniques, body language, and observation skills. In the end, participants learn how to present a few “freaky mind games” of their own.
