Physics Graduate Student Organizations


Will the real Allen Goldman please stand up? Some students dressed as a familiar character for a Halloween party sponsored by Gradphi.
The Physics Graduate Student Organization, Gradphi, organizes social and cultural activities, such as the annual Halloween Party, to promote non-academic interaction among physics graduate students. Gradphi also provides an organized voice for physics graduate students in the consideration of issues within the School of Physics and Astronomy.

Women in Physics and Astronomy The Women in Physics and Astronomy (WiPA) group was established to raise awareness throughout the entire school of not only the important contributions women have made and continue to make in physics and astronomy, but also about the various mechanisms that make it difficult for women to make those contributions. Planned activities raise the visibility of women within the school and encourage interactions amongst female graduate students, faculty and/or research associates. It is hoped that the Women in Physics and Astronomy group will encourage a respectful climate for women in the school.
