Meet and Greet. The Reppy Institute welcomes everyone to attend our 2017-2018 seminar series and this special opening reception on August 31 at 12:15 in G-08 Uris Hall during our usual seminar time slot. This first seminar meeting will not follow our usual format of a talk followed by a time for questions and discussion, but will be an informal gathering giving us all the opportunity to meet each other and learn more about what the program has to offer, such as fellowships and other funding for students.
