Informal and Student Seminars

The Student Seminar Series meets at noon on select Wednesdays throughout the academic year. Second-year students present papers from recent literature. Each student is expected to present two 30-minute presentations during their second year. Presentations are followed by lively discussion, pizza lunch and a closed session with the student presenter and two faculty.
