NSM Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Events Span Academic Year – Fall 2016-Spring 2017

This year, the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is having a birthday!


We hope you’ll join us at several of the events commemorating the College’s 40th Anniversary. Prior to fall 1976, NSM was part of the College of Arts and Sciences.
