Undergraduate Student Colloquium
Each semester the Bridwell Institute hosts a select group of undergraduate students from various schools to participate in a discussion colloquium. Sponsored by the Institute for Humane Studies, this day-long colloquium will center on informal, yet serious, discussion with just 15 participants.
