Penn iTalks 2016 Event Flyer

Penn iTalks are back for the third year running!

Make sure to mark your calendars for the upcoming GAPSA,GSEG, and SASgov-sponsored 2016 Penn iTalks, an exciting interdisciplinary event series during which SEAS and SAS graduate students will present TED-style talks on their research. A happy hour will follow each iTalks session so attendees can chat and make interdepartmental connections. You can also support your favorite speaker by voting for them to be the recipient of the Audience Favorite Prize. Join us for sessions on the following dates:

Wednesday, March 2nd, 6:30pm - Happy Hour Following Session
Wednesday, March 23rd, 6:30pm - Happy Hour Following Session

These events are open to everyone at Penn, but you must be 21+ and able to show a government-issued photo ID if you do plan to drink at the happy hours.
