The Friday Forum provides opportunities for community members to offer public presentations on their scholarly and other interests. Presentations are informal, generally lasting about 45 minutes, and are followed by a question and answer period. The Forum meets on periodic Friday afternoons during the academic year, from 4:15-5:15pm in the Little Theater (Quad 346, SJU) unless another location is noted in the announcement. All are welcome to attend-- students are especially encouraged --and refreshments are provided.
