On nearly every week of the year, students from freshmen to senior & graduate levels in SPS take the lead to organize mini academic seminars for their community.
These colloquia represent the SPS passion to share scientific knowledge & academic experiences among peers, to infuse vibrancy, collaborations & fun while pursuing science.
