The University of St. Thomas

The First Friday Speaker Series brings together hundreds of alumni, students, faculty and staff members, and friends for thoughtful presentations by community members of interest from the Twin Cities area. Each luncheon begins at noon and is followed by a presentation, along with questions and answers.
