Slide Show

We have taken photos you have sent in along with some video congratulations from our professors.

Senior Seminars

All Seniors are required to complete a research project and present that project to the department. That project finishes with an academic poster that is displayed in the department. Please take a look at the projects here.

Rolling Ball Sculpture

This year we worked really hard and had this rolling ball sculpture created specifically with physics concepts and it is here and up! We couldn’t let this class leave without getting to see it. This is in the Olin Nevada Entrance. We have remade the case and have this up now. We can’t wait for you all to come back to see it in person.

Alumni Interviews

Check out these interviews compiled this year with Alumni from the last several decades about where they are now and how they got there


THIS MOMENT, please email Kate your personal email address. The department will follow up with you each winter to let you know what we are up to and give you a chance to write in to tell us what YOU are doing. In addition Kate loves to throw a party and this is how you will know if a fun physics homecoming happens.
