TUFFTalks is UAB’s very own rendition of TEDTalk. TEDTalk aims to broadcast and bring attention to “ideas worth spreading.” Playing into that concept, TUFFTalks is an event that allows speakers at NC State, whether students, faculty, or staff, to exchange ideas, through the lens of a particular theme, to the larger Wolfpack community. This year’s theme is “In Search of Self” which encourages speakers to reflect on their own stories of self-exploration.


February 8
6:00 p.m.
Stewart Theatre, Talley Student Union

In Search of Self is meant to shine a light on the importance of embarking on the journey of self-exploration in order to find one’s true self. This event will be an awesome opportunity for students and faculty share their stories and experiences. People will want to come to this event because there will be unique giveaways, engaging student speakers, a guest keynote, and food with refreshments afterward at the reception.
