Five Must-Attend Lectures in May

Categories: Events

So what if school's all but out for summer? May promises plenty in the way of brainy endeavors. Drop the beer bong, resist that urge to wear a swimsuit to the grocery store, and dig a pen and some paper out of that soon-to-be book bonfire.

Here are our five lecture picks for summertime smarties:
