Physics Club

About The Physics Club

Our Physics Club is a venue for students to interact outside of class and share their experience on classes, professors, in house research and summer REU programs and careers. The club meets for pizza parties, rocket launches, etc and is also active in department events like colloquiums and holiday pot-luck. Interested students should contact one of the officers below, or just wander into the grad room and proclaim your interest to people you see writing bras and kets on the whiteboards.


Check out highlights of our recent activities under Student Spotlight.

See Physics Club Events for more details and previous events.
