Fall 2004

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 4:15-5:15 p.m. 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.
