Tea Time in the Physics Lounge

Physics Majors enjoying Tea Time in the Lounge

The first Physics Department Tea Time kicked off this week on Tuesday, with majors Robert Ashby, Vaughn Petersen, Sarah Antonsson, Louis Johnson, and Christian Mercolini joining faculty members Drs. Flohic [seated], Hetrick, Basu, and Holland for tea, coffee, and discussions of new physics results, GRE preparation, and campus life.

Tea Time is every Tuesday at 3pm in the Physics Department’s Student Lounge, and is open to all. We hang out, talk about what we’ve been reading, working on, beating our heads against, and otherwise thinking about. This week there was some discussion about statistics in lattice gauge theory , as well as preparations for those taking the GRE soon. We also welcomed new major Christian Mercolini who is adding a B.S. in Physics to his CV. Christian is finishing up his degree in International Affairs and Finance, but discovered that he has a great passion for astrophysics and has decided to extend his education so that he can explore this new interest.

Join us each Tuesday afternoon for tea with faculty and students in the Physics Department Lounge, just beside room 101 in Olson Hall.
