Back to Class Faculty Lecture Series

Are you ready to head Back to Class? 

The Millikin Alumni Association and Office of the Provost are proud to offer Back to Class, a free lecture series featuring Millikin faculty discussing interesting and timely topics. Designed to engage both MU alumni and the Decatur community, these presentations promise to deliver informative, fun and lively conversation. 

Have you ever been preparing for a big event in life and become ill just before the big day? While that may seem like bad luck, there is a good chance that it was not coincidental. Join us for our second presentation of the 2019-20 year as Dr. Travis Wilcoxen, biology department chair and associate professor of biology, explains how the psychological state can greatly influence our immune defenses in each positive and negative ways and there are hormones in the body that coordinate those changes.

Wednesday, Nov. 13, Noon-1 p.m.
Oberhelman Center for Leadership Performance, University Commons
No RSVP required. An $8 buffet lunch is available in the University Commons Student Dining, or feel free to bring your own. We encourage those purchasing their lunch in Student Dining to arrive by 11:30 a.m.
