The Natural Sciences Grand Seminar was created in order to bring speakers and topical subjects related to the natural sciences to the entire Loyola community for students and faculty from all disciplines to appreciate and enjoy. Each of the six natural sciences departments (biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematical sciences, and physics) sponsors a general seminar each year that is broad so all natural science majors and the greater community can understand and appreciate it.
