The Reppy Institute welcomes everyone to attend our 2018-2019 seminar series and this special opening reception 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.
