The Physics Department is in charge of the Planetarium located in room 107 in the Romney building. The planetarium offers an opportunity to explore our Universe through several different shows. Come see the stars, planets, and recognize constellations as they appear above you, just as if you were gazing at the night sky.

Student Societies

The Physics Department has many Academic Societies to help further your education and networking. Join a society today!

PH 105 Pretest

The pretest can be taken if a student feels that they do not need to take the Math preqs required for PH 105. They can take this pretest to see their math level and determine whether or not they can speak with the instructor of the section they would like to add about possibly waiving the prereq.

Weather Station

The Physics Department operates a weather station in conjunction with the National Weather Service. Visit our weather station for up to the minute weather data.
