End-of-Semester Presentations

It’s time to start thinking about end-of-semester presentations! We strongly encourage each DRP student to prepare a short talk (10-15 minutes) on the material you’ve learned this semester to give to other DRP students. Your DRP mentor will be able to help you prepare your talk, and nobody will be evaluating you on how you do, so this is meant to be a good way to get some practice presenting math in a fun and low-pressure environment!

This year, we’ll be holding the presentations on Wednesday, May 9, and Friday, May 11 from 1pm-5pm in 732 Evans and 736 Evans. We’ve sent out an email to all current DRP participants with instructions on how to sign up for a time slot to present. After everyone has signed up, we’ll send out a schedule for the talks, which will tell you what room you’ll be presenting in.

Spring 2018 Applications (and Free Food!)

Applications for the Spring 2018 semester are now open! Head over to this page for links to the applications. Applications will close on Wednesday, January 24, at 11:59, so please make sure to apply before then!

In other news, we’re holding a student mixer/information session on Tuesday, January 23, at 5pm in 732 Evans. Whether you’re an experienced DRP student or you’re new to the program, this event will be a great chance to meet other DRP applicants, find out more about the DRP, and enjoy some free food!

End-of-Semester Talks

Our end-of-semester talks will be on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, from 9am to 3pm, in 748 Evans. These presentations are a great way to meet fellow DRP students and to hear about an array of fascinating projects on a variety of topics. Plus, we’ll be providing lunch both days!

For a full schedule of the talks (along with titles and abstracts), please see this page.
