A Message to Students from the Graduate Coordinator

Congratulations to all of you on maintaining an exceptionally high calibre of seminar presentations. The care and effort you put into your seminar preparations is very much appreciated by faculty members and by your fellow students.

If you are giving a seminar this term, please be sure to notify your supervisor and committee members of your scheduled date. About two weeks before your presentation date, send them a reminder. At the same time give the title of your seminar to Carrie Harber (

Remember that the student seminar series is a required course (BCH2020/BCH2022) and that a satisfactory record of attendance (you must attend at least 70% of all student seminars) is needed to obtain credit. You are rquired to attend even if you have been given permission to write your thesis. If your supervisor is not a regular at the seminars, encourage her/him to come along with you every Wednesday.
