What’s Happening Today: Thursday, March 7

It’s the last day of SXSW EDU 2024. Time flies when you’re having fun, and we have been having so much fun, with more to look forward to today!

Today is also Crossover Day! SXSW badgeholders will be joining us for a day of community and connection, with specially-curated crossover programming aimed at bridging the two communities.

Don’t forget to stop by the SXSW EDU Bookstore and grab a read for your trip home written by your favorite speakers and participants from this year’s event. Head over before it closes at 1pm.

We’re closing out the day of programming with a mindful talk featuring Yung Pueblo in the closing Keynote Unlocking Your Best Self for Yourself & Others where he will guide audiences through the transformative journey of self-love and the art of letting go.

But wait, don’t go yet! Before you leave, we hope that you will join us for the Beats & BBQ Social presented by College Board, at Lustre Pearl where we will all celebrate the inspiring last four days together before we say goodbye.
