Graduate Colloquium Series

Held on Fridays at 2:30, the colloquia provide a venue to share in the rich and diverse studies of our fellow graduate students in a more relaxed setting. It is a great opportunity to gain experience presenting, to share and receive feedback on your work, and to test new ideas among those not necessarily acquainted with your specific field of study in an amicable setting.

Coordinator: Kate Lawson
