Dr. Travis Fridgen, Acting Dean, Faculty of Science, will host two Virtual Town Halls for undergraduate students.

The first event, aimed specifically at first-year students, will allow the newest members of our science community to ask questions and raise concerns based on their own unique perspective. The one-hour session will take place on Feb. 9 at 11:30 a.m. 

The second town hall welcomes all science undergrads, including first-year students, and will take place on Feb. 12 at 11:30 a.m. 

Students are asked to presubmit questions for the Q&A to Please indicate in which event you wish to have your question addressed. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 5.
