Join us each Thursday at 3:00 pm in the Physics Library (Merion 125) for Physics Tea. This is a social time for physics students and faculty to chat about physics, classes, grad school, and anything else! It's a great time to relax and see your professors and classmates in an informal atmosphere outside the classroom. Light refreshments are served.
Visitors are welcome, especially alumni and prospective students!
Physics seminars follow tea most weeks during term. These tea talks range from research seminars to informal presentations on graduate school, industry, and outreach. Upcoming talks are listed below.
