All students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend Xiao's presentation about acoustics.
If you would like to have lunch with Physics students, faculty, and staff, during which you might discuss some physics (or maybe nothing at all related to physics), please join us!
March 11th (Tuesday) Noon-1pm, the LDC Class of '51 Dining Room is when and where this wondrous event will take place. Meet in the study area outside Olin 331 just before noon to walk over together, or meet us there. ALL students interested in Physics, faculty, and staff are welcome and encouraged to join us; you do not need to have any certain level of experience with physics. First-year students are definitely welcome! The department will treat you to lunch if you are off board or if it's your first ever Physics Table.

Carleton's annual Senior Showcase event will take place this year on Thursday, May 8 from 11:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Severance Great Hall. Senior Showcase is the only opportunity for seniors to be in direct contact with all campus offices who need to touch base with them prior to graduation. This is a "one-stop shop" required for members of the class of 2014. Please read further for more information.
Information that may be of interest to physics and astronomy faculty, staff, and students.

Carleton Physics Department:
Natalie and I decided to have a baby on Tuesday, and we came home from the hospital yesterday. Everyone is doing well!
Walter Michael Wiebold was born at 12:27pm Tuesday, and was 7 lbs 4 oz, 19.5 inches long (3.28 kg, 49.5 cm for those of you into that sort of thing). His big brother was very excited to meet him and loves to hold him!
I look forward to working if nothing else geographically close to the department next year.

Calling all Physics & Astronomy students!
Are you considering a study abroad or off-campus program before you graduate from Carleton? There are lots of great options available through the Associated Colleges of the Midwest (ACM). Most ACM programs feature independent study, research, or internship opportunities. And all ACM programs are designed for students at liberal arts colleges, making them perfect for Carleton students.
If you’re interested in Physics & Astronomy, here is an ACM program you should check out:
- Oak Ridge Science Semester – www.acm.edu/oakridge
While Carleton’s application deadline for programs in Summer and Fall 2014 is Thursday, 17 April, if you want to go on an ACM program the deadline is Saturday, 15 March. Make sure you speak with someone in the Off-Campus Studies department ASAP to complete the Carleton application and approval process!
