Upcoming Events

  • 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), we have an app for that!

    October 22nd (Tuesday) Noon-1pm, the LDC Shearer Dining Room is when and where you should be.  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.
