Events This Week


    Monday (today!) June 2nd, all juniors plus faculty members will meet during the regular Contemporary time slot (5a or 1:50 pm) and classroom to discuss Important Things for Next Year.  


    June 3rd (Tuesday) Noon-1pm, we'll gather in the Class of '51 Dining Room for the last time to have an enjoyable lunch and discussion with other Physics Pholks this year.  Please join us!

    Meet in the study area outside Olin 331 just before noon to walk over together, or meet us at the LDC.  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.

  • Contemporary Experimental Physics Poster Session
    Wednesday, June 4, during 5A, 2nd floor Olin

    From silly putty to STMs, come learn about the projects that students have been working on in Phys 342 this term.

  • We've had some pretty awesome visiting professors the last few years!  Sadly, for all of us, we've got three who will be moving on to new things next year.  Come take a study break on Thursday (June 5th) at 2:00 pm in the 2nd Olin lounge to say farewell to professors Jay Tasson, Julie Coats, and Kassie Martin-Wells.  There will be treats, of course!
