Welcome!

Our meetings are usually held in the Science Center at 1 Oxford Street on the third floor in room 300H the last Tuesday of the month from 2-3:30pm (during the academic year).  On occassion, our meetings are on site locations that differ from our Science Center location.  Please check the calendar for event details.
