Ice cream social and Dept Research Overviews

Come join the Mathematics and Computer Science department with the annual welcome back event, where every professor will be giving a brief overview of their research. Topics covered will range from applying abstract algebra to evolutionary biology to topology and designing robust cellular automata. This is a chance for returning students to reconnect with faculty and peers, and new students to introduce themselves and discover what’s happening. It’s also a chance for majors to consider research alongside their professors.

Rated: G - PG13
