Graduate Student Symposium
Each spring the graduate students of the department of religion host an international graduate student symposium. Graduate students from all over the country and abroad travel to Tallahassee to participate in the weekend-long conference. At each symposium, a key-note address is delivered by a distinguished visitor and faculty members from the department serve as respondents for the various paper sessions.
