Lion's Lecture Series

The Graduate School and First-Year TRAC are excited to announce the return of the popular Lion's Lecture Series! This event has a couple of guest speakers in Ted-style talks (20 minutes each) about topics that ignite their passion and hope to inspire and entertain you! Our goal is to bring our faculty, staff, students and community together to share ideas and get to know each other in a relaxed setting. Multiple events are offered to the entire TAMUC community each semester featuring impactful presentations.
