Physics and Astronomy

Anticipating that this year's Nobel prize in physics would go to scientists studying gravity waves, Professor Andrea Lommen and students in her gravitational waves class organized a presentation about the physics of the waves, the remarkable facilities needed to detect them, and the importance of these observations.

Summer Centered: Sophie Frank ’19

For Sophie Frank ’19, a comparative literature major, a French minor, and a concentration in Africana studies means having the tools to tell the stories that don’t always make it into the limelight. This summer, at her internship at ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives, funded by the John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities, the Los Angeles local is hoping to learn and share the stories of the LGBTQ community in her hometown.
