Graduate Student Research Seminars

A seminar series in which senior students (second year and up) will present their own research to an audience of students and faculty to develop their presentation skills. The students will present their own work approximately once each year in a revolving schedule. Following each student's presentation, constructive advice from faculty and students will be provided about improving presentation skills and about producing effective presentation materials. The course is aimed to supply the students with the experience necessary to perform highly successful presentations outside of the college in national scientific meetings.

Meets Wednesdays in Rm. 201A. Refreshments will be available at 3:30 p.m. Talks begin at 3:45 p.m.
