The Core 100 program invites students and faculty from the College to join us for our weekly lecture series. Each week, all of the first-year students participate in lecture-discussions with about 400 of their classmates. We have space in the Center for the Arts (Building 1P) Williamson Theatre to accommodate individual guests and can have as many as two additional classes at each of the lectures. No permission is needed for classes to attend, but please notify Donna Scimeca (718.982.3405) if you plan to bring a class.

The lectures are 50 minutes and are all in the Williamson Theatre. They meet on the following days/times: Wednesdays at 11:15am and 1:25pm; on Thursdays at 8:00am, 10:10am, 4:40pm, and 6:30pm; and on Saturdays at 10:10am. The focus of the Core Lecture Series this semester will be to directly link the program’s curriculum to current events.

Post-Election Panel presented by Core Faculty

Since August, the Core Program has presented a total of 49 lectures that addressed many of the most critically important issues facing voters this Election Day. Last week participating Core faculty addressed student questions and provided an overview of the ballot for the students as they prepare to vote – many for the very first time.

For the week of Nov. 5, participating faculty will again take the stage to discuss the results of the election and provide the students with another opportunity to ask questions and comment on the outcome.
