A Nobel Endeavor

We all know Nobel Prizes signify great achievements—but how well do we understand them? For the second year in a row, the Faculty Club will ask SMU professors for concise, clear explanations of the science behind this year’s prizes. So join us and learn enough to impress friends and family. Then stick around for tasty food and drinks. It’s all free for members.

Holiday Cheer

Celebrate the end of the fall semester and usher in the holiday season with us. It’ll be a time to relax and enjoy the company of colleagues and friends—no speeches, no program. We’re trying something new—a holiday market in miniature. The Faculty Club will provide complimentary hors d’oeuvres; guests will pay for their drinks at a bar reserved for our group.

Where: Hotel Lumen on Hillcrest
When: 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
