Actress and Neuroscientist Mayim Bialik was a guest speaker on campus, sharing her story in a lecture she called Arts + Sciences = Big Bang. She started her visit with a Q&A session in the Strayer-Wood Theatre. Students had the chance to ask her about her acting career, personal life, and general information they were curious about. Ms. Bialik answered the questions honestly and truthfully, and was very down to earth and friendly. She is also a bit shorter than one might initially expect.
