CCU science professors to give local talks throughout area

To commemorate Coastal Carolina University's 50th anniversary, the university's College of Natural and Applied Sciences continues its series of 50 public discussions, called "Science for Coastal's Community," led by CCU faculty during the 2004-2005 academic year.

The talks, covering a wide variety of topics from biology to sociology, will begin Tuesday, Jan. 25 with five events that will take place simultaneously throughout Horry and Georgetown counties. All events begin at 7 p.m. and are free and open to the public.

During the following four weeks, the participating professors will repeat lectures but in different locations. There will be a question and answer session at each event. By the end of the series in March 2005, 50 talks will have been given by 10 professors at five area locations.

"This is a great way to introduce many of our very talented faculty members to the surrounding community so that they can share their expertise in a variety of areas, many of which have a direct applicability to vital local issues," said Douglas Nelson, dean of Coastal's College of Natural and Applied Sciences.
