The Lyceum Committee is dedicated to creating events that appeal to a broad array of interests.  Ultimately, we hope that people will attend these events PARTICULARLY if the events are NOT in their areas of interest, in order to learn about things that we don’t normally come in contact with, and to meet members of our college community that we don’t get to spend enough time with.
