Welcome to and Welcome back for a New Spring
Thursday Night Events and Seminar Series
that resumes Thursday, January 14, 8 pm

Members of the Environmental Science Department are so pleased to start the semester and to come together as a community.  We've puttogether a line-up of Thursday Night Events, 8-9pm New York Time via Zoom so that you can once again meet up with classmates, peer mentors, faculty and staff members on a range of topics--from academic talks by young alumnae and people in the field, to career and major planning, shares and games!  Updated schedules will be emailed and Zoom links can be found on the EnvSci Events Calendar.  If you are a Barnard student who needs this link please email us from your Barnard address requesting the link. 

Meanwhile, contact a faculty advisor or staff member if you have questions or need assistance.  We are here for you.
