On Sunday, March 14th, 2017...
BCTalks showcased undergraduate student lecturers in the Heights Room of Corcoran Commons for its Spring 2017 Series. Modeled after TEDTalks, BCTalks gave speakers the opportunity to lecture about their respective academic interests, which was made accessible to all audiences.
These talks are intended to promote the extension of undergraduate research and the sharing of academic passions beyond the traditional classroom.
