Math & Computer Science Events

Math CoffeesMathematics and Computer Science students and faculty often gather for department events. "Coffees" are gatherings to hear talks from students, faculty, or visiting speakers on ongoing research, internship and career opportunities, and other interesting topics. Social events include departmental picnics, game nights, faculty-student lunches, and more. The feature event of the year is the annual Bernard Lecture with preceding banquet where juniors and seniors are inducted into the Bernard Society.

Upcoming events are announced in a weekly email of Math/CS News for students. You can view archives or subscribe by visiting Weekly News. Math and CS Coffees are always open to the public. To see what we've been up to, check out the following lists of past year events.
