All new (FA19) students must complete the entire module and earn a score of 80% or higher on the quiz before October 7, 2019 to avoid a registration hold.

SPS Group meeting @ PSB 160
Oct 9 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Graduate Society of Physics Students (GSPS) Tea Time @ Physical Sciences Bldg., Atrium
Oct 11 @ 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

The Graduate Society of Physics Students is pleased to announce that we will be hosting Tea Time this year! It’s our hope that these events will provide an avenue for students and faculty to take a much-needed break from their normal activities and spend some time getting to know other members of the UCF Physics community. Of course, there will be plenty of tea (possibly coffee as well) and light snacks, as is befitting of such a social gathering.

On behalf of the GSPS, I would like invite you to attend our first Tea Time event of the semester, which is scheduled for Friday, October 11, at 2:30 PM (immediately following the Physics Colloquium) in the PSB Atrium. Please come join us! Also, we would encourage you to pass along any thoughts, suggestions or concerns that you may have regarding this and future events.

Women in Physics (WiP) Meetings @ PSB 160
Oct 14 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Hello all,

Welcome back! This year the Women in Physics Society (WiP), formerly the Physics Women Society (PWS), will be holding monthly general meetings as well as monthly professional development workshops. We encourage ALL students and faculty (not just women and underrepresented minorities) to attend and participate, as we believe that building an inclusive learning/working environment requires all members of the department.
