2018-19 Mellon Forum Invitation

For Trumbull Seniors Only:

Dear Trumbull Seniors,

The Trumbull College Mellon Forum provides seniors who are doing senior projects or writing senior essays with opportunities to share their work with each other in a relaxed and congenial setting.

I would like to invite you to the introductory meeting of the Forum, which will be held this coming  (TBA) in the  Fellows’ Lounge (entryway K).  After dessert and coffee, you will have a chance to learn about the Mellon Forum.  The Forum will meet in the Master’s house for a catered dinner approximately once a month on Monday evenings, starting at 6:00, throughout the school year (see the schedule below).  After dinner, three seniors will present their projects in fifteen-minute talks, and there is typically a lively question-and-answer period after each presentation.  Past participants have expressed that they greatly enjoyed the opportunity to learn about the academic interests of their fellow seniors in an intimate social setting.

Interested seniors are invited to apply for a place in the Mellon Forum by filling out and submitting the form that will be available at the introductory meeting next Wednesday and afterwards at the Master’s office (alternatively, students can use the online form).  Those students accepted into the program are expected to attend all its meetings.

This Wednesday at the introductory, we will discuss in more detail how the forum will be organized this year, and I can answer any questions you might have.
