BEMIDJI -- Bemidji State University’s Honors Program will host a lecture series, with topics ranging from baseball to Alzheimer's Disease, beginning Tuesday, Feb. 15.

The series is hosted by the Bemidji State Honors Council, an advisory group to the honors program composed of 12 faculty members representing each of the university’s colleges. Student representatives are also elected to the council by their cohorts for one-year terms, a release said.

This semester's presentations will also feature two professors entering emeritus status at the close of the 2021-2022 academic year in May: Marty Wolf, professor of mathematics and computer science, and Mark Christensen, professor of English.

The series provides BSU faculty with a forum to share their expertise and the results of their research with the Bemidji community.

The following programs will be held as part of the lecture series:
