Graduate Student Events

We have a variety of graduate student events happening at EOAS. Join us!

Everyone is welcome to department meetings. These meetings are normally held twice a month and it is a great way for you to find out what is going on in the department.

The EOAS colloquium series has been excellent in terms of both the quality of the talks, their breadth and the diversity of the speakers. The follow up specialized talks and discussions on Fridays have also been very rich. The Colloquium series is held every Thursday. The colloquium schedule can be found here.

Come listen to short vignettes and stories related to some of the most inspired and inspiring work being carried across EOAS!

Join with like-minded people in events where diversity, equity and inclusion are the common factors.

Please join us for coffee hour every two weeks! Brew up a coffee or a tea, grab a snack, and come say hello. Of course, everyone is welcome!

Come take part in an evening of research communication with the aim to highlight the work done by students (undergrads, grads), postdocs, researchers, and faculty in our department. It is the perfect time to learn more about all the different topics addressed by our department. Everyone is welcome to attend!
