BACTAC, the Beverage And Chips Tuesday Afternoon Colloquium, is a weekly forum
run by graduate students. The goal is provide an informal setting in which
anyone can (basically) present anything. In the past, we have had practice
talks for conferences and job interviews, research reports, juggle lessons (!),
student representative reports, internship discussions, an introduction to
ergonomics, and "pay attention to this when you are going to look for job"
BACTAC is meant to be an informal and social event to promote the interaction
among graduate students. BACTAC is typically held every Tuesday, at 3:30pm,
in room ECOT 831. Free munchies and drinks are provided.
