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 is scheduling a 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, Oct. 12 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. The series will resume in late January 2005. By the end of the series in March 2005, a total of 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.
