Graduate Liberal Studies

Join the students, alumni, and faculty of Graduate Liberal Studies at Wesleyan University for an evening lecture and reception that begins at 8 p.m. Professor Bill Herbst will present What's Happening in Astronomy Today? and give a tour of Wesleyan's Van Vleck Observatory.

The tour will culminate with a viewing of Jupiter, and a light reception. If the night is clear, we'll venture outside to observe constellations. Those who stay on will be greeted with warming beverages, and - hopefully! - a sighting of a stray 'falling star' from the Geminid Meteor Shower. This event is the third in a series of five celebrating 60 years of Graduate Liberal Studies at Wesleyan. Please call (860) 685-3345 to RSVP to this event, or visit our website for more details at http://www.wesleyan.edu/masters. Admissions staff will be available before and after the lecture to talk about the program with prospective students.
