Last Lecture Series

Lectures Coordinated by Scholars United

USC faculty will have a chance to give a lecture as if it were the last one they could ever give. The Last Lecture Series showcases the academic and personal interests and passions of faculty members on the USC-Columbia campus in an informal setting. Faculty compose a hypothetical talk on any topic of their choosing.

The purpose of these lectures is to allow professors and students to encounter one another outside of a classroom. Lecturing professors have the opportunity to speak on topics that are significant and intriguing to them. The lecture series helps connect students with the central purpose of a college education — the encouragement of intellectual curiosity.

Scholars United welcomes you to attend any of these great lectures. The lectures are held at 7 pm in the Gressette Room of Harper College 3rd floor.

Scholars United invites you to nominate your favorite professors by e-mailing  Nominations are accepted on a continuing basis.
