Colloquium Series

    The Mathematics and Computer Science Department sponsors speakers each semester in our Colloquium Series.  Our goal is to show students new, thought-provoking material and to get them interested in Mathematics and Computer Science.  Most talks are held in Bagby 217, unless otherwise noted, on select Tuesdays of the semester from 4-5pm.  The talks are intended for students at all levels.
