Student Involvement

Summer research students have pizza with faculty

Get involved in physics and astronomy

Student employment - get valuable job experience working as a lab assistant, observatory assistant or grader for introductory courses. Ask your advisor about position openings.

Society of Physics Students - join other physics and astronomy students in the Calvin chapter of the society of physics students for movie nights, sporting events, seasonal events, and private planetarium shows and tours.

Physics community - hang out with other physics and astronomy students in the department's common and work area, and join faculty and students for fun social events throughout the year. In a popular event, called "Pizza and a Prof," students get to ask a professor about his or her life's story, hobbies, experiences and just about anything else.
