Carl Heer: How will talking to strangers change your life?
Check out episode # 42 of Fraternity Foodie! Today we interview Carl Heer, a Cognitive Science Major at Rutgers University and member of Sigma Alpha Mu Fraternity. We met Carl at NGLA 2020 in Baltimore, and he has his own TED talk called “Talk To Strangers, It Will Change Your Life”, which has lots of benefit to fraternity and sorority members. We find out why he chose Rutgers, what was special about his chapter of Sigma Alpha Mu, why today’s students are actually more alone than ever, his backpacking experience through New Mexico with complete strangers, his experiment in NYC’s Central Park with changing lives in 3 minutes, how students can connect with each other while “social distancing” during COVID-19, how to make the best of the situation we find ourselves in, and some of his favorite restaurants in New Jersey.
