As you can tell if you're reading this, the UPS website is back up and will be updated over the next few days; however, we intend to phase out of using this site. All communications will eventually be done through the Wisconsin Involvement Network, so please make sure to join the club at win.wisc.edu/organization/physicsclub. An events calendar, a mechanism for mass e-mailing, contact information, the tutoring schedule, everything--will eventually be up on that site. I will continue to maintain both websites for the time being, but it would be to your benefit to join us through WIN.
Like bagels, pancakes, and bacon? Come eat breakfast and relax with the Physics Club on Thursday, 5/17 from 10am-1pm.
Don't go taking finals on an empty stomach. The Physics Club is here to help you succeed!!
