Weekly Colloquium

Most weeks during the semester, we host a scholar for a one-day visit. The visit culminates with a public talk on a topic of contemporary physics or astronomy. Students are welcome to these talks, and seniors are required to attend at least nine over the course of a year. We gather before the talks for tea, coffee, and cookies. Near the end of each semester, honors thesis students give public lectures on their work. The typical schedule has refreshments at 4:00 pm in Merrill 204 with the talk at 4:15 pm in Merrill 3. 

Our Astronomy program is part of the Five College Astronomy Department, which hosts its own colloquium series Thursdays at 3:45 pm at UMass in LGRT 1033.
