Collage of Students with SpeakersSince 2006, the BB&T Colloquium Series on Capitalism has brought leading scholars in economics, political science and public policy to CNU to speak to students and the general public on current topics.

These lectures and related events, which take place once a semester, often overlap with course material and provide students with rich opportunities to raise questions and engage experts face to face. Students relish the personal interaction, and BB&T lecturers -- noting the high caliber of questions and comments as well as the beauty of the CNU campus -- enjoy it, too.

For further details on the BB&T Colloquium Series, contact the Department of Economics at (757) 594-7068 or dianne.williams@cnu.edu.
