For Students, By Students
Welcome to a new section of the department website built entirely by students, for students! The idea behind these pages is to offer resources that we as students think you will find helpful, and to welcome you to the wonderful physics community here at Haverford. Each section offers valuable information on how to succeed as a physics student!
Confused about the difference between Office Hours and Physics Clinic? Need to find a study group? Don’t know how to get around the KINSC? The Academic Resources page has all the answers you’re looking for!
Meet the Majors
So who are these “physics students” anyways? How do we spend our time outside class? How can you get in contact with an upperclassman if you want to learn more about a research experience or academic program? Visit the Meet the Majors page to find out!
Meet the Faculty
Want to learn more about your physics/astro professor? Don’t know what makes them stay up at night? Check out the Meet the Faculty page!
Extracurriculars & Summer Opportunities
Looking to join a student organization related to physics/astronomy? Interested in research but have no clue on how to contact a professor? Never applied for a summer program and need all the help you can get? Take a look at the Extracurriculars and Summer Opportunities page!
Student Perspectives on Faculty Research
Want to learn what a physics/astro professor’s research is all about? Want to know what a day in the lab is like? Can’t seem to understand what nanoparticles and plasma matter is? Want a simpler explanation of the types of research available?
