Nearly two dozen students at Brandon University will present from their senior-level projects at a Colloquium on Monday, April 8.

Colloquium is the term for an academic meeting that discusses multiple topics, and is an apt title for this annual event, where student presentations embrace a broad diversity of subjects, from rail lines to rural broadband to radiographs to Riding Mountain National Park.

“There’s always something for everyone at the Colloquium, but I’m really impressed with this year’s lineup,” said co-organizer Dr. James Naylor, a history professor at BU, who noted that anyone, including members of the public, were invited to drop in at any point during the day, and to stay for as many presentations as they liked.
