Colloquia and Seminars

Astronomy Colloquia

Reviews of the latest astronomical research by visiting scholars are typically held each Thursday afternoon during the autumn and spring semesters. For more information on topics, times, and location, see the Astronomy Colloquium Schedule.

Astronomy Tea

We have Astro Coffee to discuss academic topics, but students, postdocs, and faculty members need an occasion for discussing interdisciplinary topics, and even random stuff that leads to great ideas. We will have Astro Tea cover these topics. This hour-long open event occurs at 3:30 PM every Friday, we will enjoy snacks, tea, and casual interaction and conversations in the Astronomy Main Conference Room.

Astro Coffee

Get your morning dose of caffeine & join in the lively discussion of the latest astronomical results at Astro Coffee. Held each morning at 10:30 AM. See the Astro Coffee Page for more information.
