Prospective Students


The Physics Department at West Chester University prides itself on being a close-knit community. With small upper division class sizes, students are able to benefit from extensive one-on-one attention from the professors. Professors' doors are always open to discuss physics problems, offer career guidance, play with the latest gadget, or chat about what to do around West Chester. The students work closely with one another discussing problem sets, experiments, as well as how they are going to defeat the faculty in the annual croquet match.

If you would like to visit the department, please contact Dr. Aptowicz or just stop by. A good time to chat with students and faculty is at the Physics Tea, every Thursday at 3:00 pm.
