General Department Events

Physics Colloquia and Seminars

Colloquia
Perhaps the best way to meet people in the department, hear about physics, and score some free food. All students invited.
Colloquia are almost always on Wednesdays. Coffee, tea, and delectable treats at 3:45 in Compton 241. Talk begins at 4:00 in Crow 204. 

Seminars
Generally more technical than colloquia. Cookies and coffee 5-10 minutes before the posted starting time in Compton 241; talk in Compton 241. All students invited.
