We are pleased to share the complete schedule for the 2023 John U. Free Seminar Series. Students, Faculty, and Staff will receive an email notification on the Thursday before each event. Alumni and other interested individuals may use the form below to sign up for notifications and receive links for the live streams.

One of the great things about being part of a Christian college community is the opportunity it affords to expand our intellectual horizons and pursue together a greater understanding of truth in the world God has made. One of those opportunities this Spring Semester is the John U. Free Seminar Series. Named for ENC’s own Prof. Emeritus of Physics, Dr. John Free, the series explores a range of topics related to disciplines like Physics, Math, and Engineering. Even if these disciplines aren’t your comfort zone, come and see what you might learn about the world. This seminar series is held on Friday afternoons during community hour to introduce our ENC community to the exciting work done by members of the Shrader Ground Floor Programs as well as external speakers. All are welcome to attend!
