First-years have two chances to learn about Sophomore Residential Seminars program

By Kellyann Hayes '16 on January 26, 2014

Classes are once again in full swing, and so are the many activities available around campus.  As students return to their studies, be sure to make time in your new schedules to check out the many events, lectures, and information sessions Colgate has to offer this week!

Would you be interested in living and traveling with your classmates in a close-knit learning experience? If you’re a first-year student interested in the opportunity to join the Sophomore Residential Seminars program in the upcoming school year, be sure to stop by the Multipurpose Room at ALANA Cultural Center on Tuesday at 7 p.m. for an information session.  Meet the current faculty and students while learning more about the program and the trips planned for next year!

If you can’t make this information session, you’ll have another chance to meet the program’s current students and get an insider’s perspective at the SRS Open House on the fourth floor of Drake Hall on Thursday at 7 p.m.

On Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. don’t miss Moore’s Law: Shaping our Generation, a physics and astronomy seminar presented by Professor Kenneth Segall. As the observation that over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors in a computer processor doubles approximately every two years, Moore’s Law represents a triumph of engineering.

The seminar will include a discussion of how Moore’s Law applies to super computers and how it relates to the general model of computing after Segall discusses the physics, implications, and outlook of the law. It’s sure to be an engaging discussion, so be sure to come by Room 101 in the Ho Science Center on Tuesday!

Whether you’re looking to get active, learn some new outdoors skills, or still need PE credit, stop by the COOP Tuesday or Wednesday between 10:15 a.m. and 2 p.m. for Outdoor Education and Physical Education sign-ups. Some outdoor education classes offered include skiing, ice climbing, and snow hiking.

On Wednesday, be sure to stop by the Student Involvement Fair between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.! All SGA-recognized, cultural, and religious life/spiritual groups will be set up in the Hall of Presidents,  and all club sports and COVE groups will be in Huntington Gym. Visit the clubs and groups you’re already interested in joining or browse through to learn more about Colgate’s many student groups and get involved!
