Math & Computer Science Events

Math CoffeesMathematics and Computer Science students and faculty often gather for department events. The events are usually weekly meetings to hear talks from students, faculty, or visiting speakers on ongoing research or interesting topics in mathematics and computer science. Social events include departmental picnics at the Lake Campus. The feature event of the year is the annual Bernard Lecture with preceding banquet where juniors and seniors are inducted into the Bernard Society.

We usually meet every Wednesday 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. in Chambers 3155 during the academic year. Refreshments precede at 4:15 in the Mathematics and Computer Science hallway. All open to the public!
