This lecture series features speakers across disciplines and professions and provides students an opportunity to learn about topics outside their major areas of study.  Speakers are faculty members discussing their research, community members or alumnae offering internship and career tips, students sharing their Newcomb-funded research, or visiting professors with different perspectives.  Students can engage with speakers in question-and-answer sessions following the talks.  

Fridays at Newcomb are held at noon on most Fridays throughout the academic year in the Anna Many Lounge in the Caroline Richardson Building.
