College of Arts and Sciences

 College of Arts and Sciences Student Speaker Series.

The Student Speaker Series provides an occasion for CAS students to share their passion and insights for each of their respective disciplines.  Over the course of the two evenings, nine undergraduate scholars will share their work spanning the CAS disciplines in humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and mathematics.  We encourage everyone to attend and to learn more about topics ranging from radio astronomy to literature to the power of knowledge.
