Fall 2013 Colloquium Schedule

Everyone is welcome to come to our colloquium series. These occur every Friday at 3:30 PM in Neils Science Center Room 221 or 224 (for NCIS colloquia).

This year we continue our Neils Colloquia on Innovative Science (NCIS) colloquium series. This exciting joint colloquium series (with Biology, Chemistry, and Pre-Medical Arts) brings in accomplished speakers from around the country to give talks to an audience of students and faculty from all the sciences in Neils. Please make an extra effort to attend these talks as they promise to be inspiring, informative, and interesting. 

If you can join us for refreshments before, meet us in the planetarium at 3:05, or in the Neils Science Center lobby for NCIS colloquia (see the schedule).
