Welcome Back Physics Students!

Aug 3, 2010

Dear Physics Students (both undergraduate and graduate):

Please mark your calendars for a required meeting for all undergraduate and graduate majors on Friday, August 27th, at 3 p.m. in Currens Hall 205. This meeting will provide you with extremely important and pertinent information about all of the opportunities that await you within the WIU Physics Department. Physics faculty and staff will be recognized and introduced to you, information about the many opportunities for departmental scholarships and awards will be shared, our physical sciences librarian will update you on important library resources available to assist you in your coursework and research, upcoming physics colloquia and physics student organization meetings will be announced, and physics faculty who provide research opportunities for students will each take 5 minutes to share with you a bit about the interesting things you can do with them. They will remain on hand afterwards for further discussion, in case you have more in-depth questions.

Following this mandatory meeting, we will have pizzas and soft drinks available for everyone in the nearby Physics conference room, Currens Hall 210.

I look forward to seeing each of you at this important meeting and welcoming you to our department in person.

Please see your e-mail for more information.

Dr. Mark S. Boley, Professor and Chair
