Graduate Student Life

Events on Campus

Claremont affords students with countless opportunities to get involved in academic, cultural, and political events.  Click here for some recent academic events on campus hosted by DBOS.

Take a look at the DBOS Calendar for current events.  Recent guests at cultural and entertainment events on campus have included A-list names in politics and entertainment, as well as luminaries in academia (such as psychology legends Albert Bandura, Philip Zimbardo, Stanley Sue, and Robert Rosenthal).  You can also visit our free online video library to watch many of these talks in their entirety.
