What is the Physics Club?
The Physics Club is a student organization for students interested in physics and related fields. You do NOT have to be a Physics major to join!
What does the Physics Club do?
The Physics Club organizes events such as seminars, tours, trips, and socials for its members. Physics Club volunteers also offer free drop-in tutoring to students in introductory physics and astronomy classes. In addition, we maintain subscriptions to science related magazines such as Scientific American, Astronomy, and Physics Today, which are kept in the club’s room (2328 Chamberlin Hall) for students to read at their leisure.
The club also sponsors a variety of other events. For example, in the past, we took a trip down to Fermilab and sponsored a racquetball tournament. Who knows what we’ll come up with this year? If you have any good ideas feel free to suggest something.
Why should I join the Physics Club?
By joining the Physics Club you’ll be meeting many physics majors, who are, in general, really cool people to hang out with. If you are even thinking about declaring a physics major, this is the place to come for helpful advice about taking classes and getting a job in the physics department. But even if you don’t care about physics, you’re still quite welcome here. We like to meet all sorts of people. We are all truly laid back individuals and nobody should feel intimidated about approaching us.
If you join, you can get access to the Physics Club Room, 2328 Chamberlin Hall, which is a great place to study or goof off any time. Joining also adds you to the club email list, so you can be notified about club sponsored events.
We also sell cheap soda and snacks.
How do I join the Physics Club?
The best way to join is to stop by the club room, 2328 Chamberlin Hall, and ask if an officer is available. An officer will explain what we do and would be happy to answer any questions you have about the club. If you are interested in joining, they will collect the $5 annual membership fee and then add you to the club email list. We no longer accept online applications to join the mailing list due to spam and other problems
Where is the Physics Club room located?
It’s located in 2328 Chamberlin Hall, 1150 University Ave, Madison WI. You can easily get to the club room by entering Chamberlin on the Charter St entrance and going up the stairs to the second floor.
