Thompson Hall Science & Mathematics Seminars

Due to the University's efforts to promote social distancing in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, Thompson Hall Seminars will be a combination of in-person and virtual depending on health and safety conditions. We will keep information as up-to-date as possible. 

The seminars are normally held on Thursdays, from 4 to 5 p.m. in Thompson 175 unless otherwise posted. They are open to the general public.

Students, faculty, staff, and guests are invited to gather for refreshments and conversation at 3:45 p.m. before each seminar.

The Thompson Hall Science and Mathematics Seminars have been held on a regular basis since 1978-79. Once again the seminar series will feature presentations by Puget Sound faculty and students and invited guest speakers on a wide range of topics. Please join us in welcoming the following speakers:
