03/14/17 – Update on the event: Thanks for the organizers who provided food and beverages. We hope you will come back for the future gatherings GAP will host.
The Graduate Association of Physicists would like to invite you to join us for a bagel brunch on Tuesday, March 7th at 12:00 PM in the Interaction Zone. Come and enjoy bagels and cream cheese with coffee and orange juice while spending time with other physics graduate students from the department. This will be the first event of regular monthly gatherings with the physics graduate students. We hope to see you there!
Thanks for coming out to our Donut Social yesterday! We hope you enjoyed catching up with fellow citizens of the SoP over donuts and coffee. Click for a brief recap of some administrative points from the meeting:
We will be having our next focus group Wednesday at 4PM in the Interaction Zone. Our suggested topic is “Stress and Emotional Health”. We understand that this can be a sensitive topic, so for those of you who’d rather contribute to the discussion anonymously, we’ve made a form for you to send us anonymous input.
We’d like to give a somewhat brief update on GAP’s development of an ASF event to be held in a couple months. The details are in the works, but the framework has been laid and the event looks very promising!
GAP welcomes everyone back to campus for the Spring 2016 semester! Here are just a few of the things to look forward to in the upcoming semester:
Our biweekly Physics Forum will begin again on Thursday, January 28 at 4PM in the Interaction Zone. Any students who are interested in giving a 20 or 40 minute presentation on their research or other topic of interest should contact our officer Forrest Kieffer to be placed on the schedule.
We are proud to be involved in organizing an event in the 2016 Atlanta Science Festival – The Science of Beer will be hosted at SweetWater Brewery on Wednesday, March 23rd. More details to come.
Dr. Jeff Hasty, an alumnus of the Georgia Tech School of Physics and current professor of Molecular Biology and Bioengineering at the University of California San Diego, will be having lunch with the SoP students this Monday, November 23rd. Please join us from 12-1 pm in the Interaction Zone for pizza and Q&A with Dr. Hasty! He did his PhD thesis at Tech under the supervision of Prof. Kurt Wiesenfeld. Dr. Hasty now runs the Biodynamics Laboratory, and he is giving the Physics Colloquium on Monday the 23rd at 3pm, in Klaus 1116 W.
