TEDxSMU 2016: Illuminate

TEDxSMU 2016 began this year on Friday evening (11/11) for TEDxSMU After Dark – a casual, fun night of food and drinks mixed with speakers and live music. Next, on Saturday (11/12) two full sessions of TEDx Talks from local and national speakers.  The goal of the day was to learn something new, meet someone new, and get more connected to your community.

Check out pictures from both events here!
