Galentine's Day is a fun day before Valentine's Day where female friendships are celebrated. So do an act of kindness for someone, share candy with a BFF, and/or tell a special female figure in your life that you appreciate them. In the words of Parks and Rec's Leslie Knope, "It is ladies celebrating ladies!".

TEDxWakeForestU: Power of Curiosity will take place in Wait Chapel at Wake Forest University.

This year’s TEDxWakeForestU centers on the power of curiosity. Our team encourages you to come and engage with our speakers to be inspired about the curiosities of our world. It has often been said that curiosity creates an openness to unfamiliar experiences, while at the same time laying a foundation for greater opportunities to experience discovery, joy, and delight. We have an exciting speaker line up, and we hope that by attending, you will be inspired to explore what makes you curious, in effect allowing you to transform everyday tasks into interesting and enjoyable experiences. We look forward to seeing you in the audience."

- Hayden Lineberger, Director of TEDxWakeForestU 2017.
