Rock Chalk Talks Application

Rock Chalk Talks will be held at the Commons in Spooner Hall. Applications are taken on a rolling basis, though we try to have the schedule set for each event at least 2 weeks ahead of time. All areas of research and creative projects are encouraged to apply to present. Keep in mind that these are fun, fast-paced talks (only ~6 minutes), so you'll need to keep it concise and engaging!
