What Do Professors Talk About?

From supercluster stars to hockey stars, faculty share their research in a casual setting


Neal Burdick '72

Ever wonder what your favorite professors are up to on the scholarship front? The list of topics presented at the St. Lawrence Faculty Café can give you a good idea. These events take place on campus periodically throughout each semester, and allow faculty members to share their work with each other in a relaxed setting. Part of the hope behind the gatherings, in the words of the organizers, is that they will “inspire lively discussion, helpful feedback and criticism, and interest in future collaborations across disciplines.”
