Two exciting events. I asked if our grad students could also attend, and got an enthusiastic “yes.” So a special note to my graduate students: don’t miss this; it promises to be terrific. If you’re from not affiliated with the U of S and you’re interested, I suggest you phone Stephanie at the number below.
