Friday Symposium

Join us for weekly academic presentations by DBU faculty, staff, students, and guest speakers as we participate in and contribute to the "Great Conversation" from the vantage point of the "Greatest Conversation!"

The Friday Symposium is a weekly, interdisciplinary lecture series on campus sponsored by the University Honors Program. It meets for one hour just about every Friday at noon at the Rogers Theater in Pilgrim Chapel. You can bring your lunch and feed both the body and mind simultaneously.

The purpose of the Friday Symposium is to stimulate meaningful conversation about topics of classic and contemporary importance and to do so from the vantage point of Christian conviction. So, plan on attending as many Symposium sessions as you can! It is an excellent opportunity for the entire DBU community to participate in and contribute to the "Great Conversation!"
