To help you grow as a physicist, astronomer, or engineer, we have colloquium series several times a semester.
The series gives you a chance to get away from the classroom setting, hear from people in the business, and see what’s been done elsewhere. We usually bring in about a dozen speakers a semester. Speakers include government scientists and professors at other universities.
The colloquium is required, and you do get credit for it. Grad students have to attend three series, undergraduates, one or two.
To make sure you've soaked it all in, we require that you give a presentation at the end of each semester about what you learned. In the fall, you will do an oral presentation, and in the spring, you will do a poster board presentation. These exercises will develop your presentation skills, which is essential in this discipline.
Please join us for our physics and astronomy related seminars. All seminars take place in Cooper Physical Science Building (CP), room 144, and begin at 3:30 p.m. (unless noted otherwise). Refreshments are served at 3:15 p.m. in CP 108. Please call 765-285-8860 for further information.
