The Colloquium Series is back in full effect. The schedule for the Spring Semester will be sent out and printed up this week. Still finalizing some details. The first few ones will be practical presentations aimed at the students, while the rest of the semester will include numerous faculty and student presentations of work. I am really excited about this semester's line-up.
To kick things off, the first colloquium of the semester is this Friday January 30, from 4-5pm in Room 100 of Classroom Office Building. It will be a panel of 3-4 students discussing the PhD exam process. They will discuss picking the reading lists, working with committee members, preparing for the tests, writing the tests, defending, and the aftermath. It should be of particular interest to PhD students who are headed down that road. It would also benefit those Master's students who are thinking of extending into a PhD program. Come armed with questions, as there will be plenty of discussion time.
