Event Information: 

Each semester, students in the Fels Public Communications public speaking and speech writing classes work tirelessly toward their final presentations - a speech to inspire their audience. They never disappoint, and each year for one night only, we bring their excellent work out of the classroom and onto the stage!

Join us on April 29, 2019, when these skilled presenters from across the university will speak their truth on topics that will make you laugh, cry, and swell with pride. It is not to be missed - and there will be food and drinks too!
