The Renaissance Circle is an informal colloquium for first-year students interested in cultivating interests within the arts, humanities, and sciences.
Monthly workshops show students how these areas relate to one another and will help them develop a broad set of skills that promote intellectual and other forms of creativity applicable to any walk of life.
