LUNCH AND DINNER SEMINARS

Each semester we offer a small number of lunch and dinner seminars with Georgia College professors or visiting scholars on a variety of topics. These informal "learning beyond the classroom" experiences stimulate thought and discussion and promote student-faculty interaction.

This seminar series is made possible by a generous gift from Dr. Ken Saladin.
