The COLLOQUIUM is the big deal of the graduating year. The first thing I will suggest about it is to ASK YOUR FRIENDS about their colloquium. It should fun FUN and not SCARY. Making it fun is up to YOU. The Gallatin WEbsite has ALOT of information about it here.
Some things to think about:
- Is the theme, the ideas and the central questions of your discussion clear to you?
- Have you prepared by studying each text separately and in connection to one another?
- Can you define the terms of your conversation?
- Are all your text relevant?
Let me know if you have questions!
