Eighteen speakers have signed on for a day of inspirational talks from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Feb. 25 in Wait Chapel. The event is open to the public.
For the uninitiated, the prospect of 18 talks in one day could sound like a college lecture series on steroids. But if you’ve ever watched a TED Talk online, then you’ll know why the students organizing the event are so excited. And if you haven’t, now’s your big chance to see it in person."TEDxWakeForestU will literally open the gates of innovation by being accessible, inspirational and affordable to a wide audience,”says Wake Forest senior Lucy Lan, who came up with the idea for the event and recruited other students to help.
