Front Row is a new virtual series that brings the College to Alumni through unique and interesting presentations by both current and retired faculty members on timely topics such as new campus research on Covid-19, the 2020 elections, the secret lives of lobsters, underwater digital photography, Stephen King’s gothic literature, and more!

Witness the diversity of talents and interests of faculty who inspire our students (both on–campus and online) to explore unique experiences, establish new interests and master challenges in areas that fulfill their passions.
