Hey folks – welcome to the online presence of Nerd Nite State College! We launched in February 2019, and can’t wait to keep growing our nerdy community right here in Happy Valley.

What’s Nerd Nite? Check out what the national crew has to say: “We all know that learning is more fun when you’re drinking with friends and colleagues. Thus, since 2003, Nerd Nite is a monthly event held in more than 100 cities across the globe during which several folks give 18-21-minute fun-yet-informative presentations across all disciplines – while the audience drinks along.  And there are often bands, acrobats, trivia, and other shenanigans as well.  Imagine learning about everything from math feuds or the science of the Simpsons, to the genealogy of Godzilla or zombie insects, while having a few or a few too many.  Fun, right?”

Hosted in Webster’s Bookstore Café, we also feature a local brewery each Nerd Nite! (But one of our event organizers is sober, and we strive to create a welcoming space, no matter what you drink.)
