First Meeting 2011

The Society of Physics Students will be having its first meeting of the semester this Friday at 4:00 PM in Malott 3005. We are going to start the semester off by playing a cool physics card game called Quarked Rummy, a card game about particle physics. It's going to be a lot of fun!

We will be continuing our usual social period for students and faculty alike, from 4:00 until roughly 4:15 at the beginnings of SPS meetings. As usual, snacks and drinks will be provided. We hope to see you there.

November 12, 2010

Message From Greg Rudnick:

On Friday Nov. 12th we will be having a special meeting with the topic "How to be successful in graduate school". In this meeting we will have a discussion about what you need to do in graduate school that isn't part of the formal curriculum, but is crucial to being a successful scientist.

Attendance by *all* graduate students is strongly suggested. Interested undergraduates are also welcome to attend.

The meeting will be at 4pm in 3005 Malott in place of the normal SPS meeting.

Food and drinks will be provided.

Please let me know if you have any questions.


We will also be discussing the upcoming physics portion of the Chemistry Fair, so make sure to come so we can plan out demos and other acticities.
