Undergrad Life

Undergraduate Life

Undergraduate students play an important part in the life of the physics department.Our dynamic Society of Physics Students is consistently recognized by the national organization for their oustanding work in supporting future physicists but also for their tremendous outreach program. Undergraduates have a lounge on the sixth floor of the Nielsen Physics Building where they can study, hang out, or catch a nap between classes. Students can work for the department helping with lab set-up or taking shifts in the department's tutorial center. They also have a say in departmental matters via the undergraduate student liaison committee, which meets with the department head to address issues of particular importance to undergraduates.
