The Thompson Hall Science and Mathematics Seminars have been held on a regular basis since 1978. The seminar series features presentations by Puget Sound faculty, alumni, and invited guest speakers.
For the Spring 2022 semester, the Thompson Hall Seminars will be held virtually on Thursdays, from 4 – 4:50 p.m. (Pacific). They are open to the campus community and the general public. To request the meeting link, please contact Jo Crane, the THSMS coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students, faculty, staff, and guests are invited to begin entering the Thompson Hall seminar site at 3:50 p.m. (Pacific). If you are accessing the seminar via phone or entering the site as a guest, please allow extra time so that the moderator can grant you access into the seminar site.
