Throughout the year, UDOLLI offers a variety of seminars and scheduling options. During the academic year, we offer fall, winter and spring seminar series that meet weekly, Monday through Saturday, covering topics such as art, philosophy, film, finance, literature, sports, health and many more. In summer, we host two one-day seminars -- great way to immerse and explore interesting topics over the summer academic break. We also host special week-long seminar series, so be on the lookout for new, special series to be announced.
