A mandatory one-hour course for all first-year graduate students whose primary program is in Mathematics & Statistics, the Graduate Student Seminar normally meets during Fall and Spring semesters every Wednesday from 3:00 to 3:50 pm in 249 Parker Hall.

The main purpose of the seminar is to expose new graduate students to the various research areas represented in the Department, as well as to general-interest topics related to the graduate program, research, or teaching. During most of the weekly meetings, a faculty member or advanced graduate student will make a presentation about his or her area of research or field of interest.

All graduate students and faculty are invited to attend. Up-to-date information about this week's seminar may be found here
