Seminars Around Campus

First of all, I hope everyone had a good first week of classes! I'm taking a pretty light load this semester (comparatively) because I'm trying to use all of my time for doing research, among other things...

Anyway, I struck up a conversation with another PAL (Jenny, also a GPB major), just catching up and what not, and I mentioned seminars.

Seminars...what so great about them? First, it's not really a class, so you don't have to go to every single one of them. But the best thing is, you get to hear lectures from visiting scholars on certain topics and learn about things that you would have never encountered or learn about. Plus, you become more aware of the current research being done in that field. It's like going to a conference, but instead of 15 minute talks, you get 50 minutes to 1 hour talks (more in depth), and it's more spread out (so you can go to as many that fits your schedule throughout the year).

So here's a listing of seminars I came across:

Botany Lunch - I've been to these consistently until last year or so (had discussion), but this year, I'm not going to let discussion deter me from going to some of them!
ESPM Events - not updated yet, but keep checking! It also has links to a wide range of other seminars (makes this post kind of useless), but I'll also link to some other ones that might be of interest/repeated
IB Seminars
MCB Seminars
- Plant Biology and Microbial Biology Seminars
And for something a little less science related....
Music series
Lunch Poems

So take advantage of all of these cool, free things to do! They usually occur during lunch time (and some of them let you bring your own food and eat during the talk). These are really opportunities you don't want to miss out on.
