Welcome Back !

 

NEWS:

Welcome back to another year of Physics and Astronomy! The first meeting showed interest in working on a semester-long project. Come to the next meeting to find out more information. Club Day is coming soon, so look for us out in the quad.

The first star party of the semester has been set for the first Thursday in October. Look below for more information. If you would like to learn how to use our telescopes, contact Lab Tech Tom.

The end-of-year picnic, sponsored by the Physics Club and engineering and physics professors Level and Ankoviak celebrated the transfer of a large number of students to various four-year universities. The food was excellent and the camaraderie was great. It was nice seeing so many students sporting the stylish LPC Physics Club t-shirts. Thanks again to Prof. Level and Prof Ankoviak for their support!

 

Awards

Of course, we are the best club on campus. We are, after all, physics nerd and enginerd wannabes. As a testimony to our greatness:
