Pizza with the Profs
The first event of the year is a pizza party. This is a
great opportunity to spend time with the physics professors and
other members of the club outside of the academic environment.
The location changes from year to year, but food, fun, and games
are all around. This is an event you don't want to miss!
Homecoming Tailgate Party
Close to a two-decade tradition, the tailgate party is a time
for alumni, undergraduates, and professors to reunite and enjoy
the company of one another. You can find our tent at homecoming.
Come and enjoy food and fun!
Rent-a-Student is the primary source of income for the
Physics Club and also the reason there are no dues.
Students volunteer a few hours of their time to
rake leaves or other home chores in exchange for
donations to the club. Besides getting the opportunity
to meet members of the community and other club members,
volunteers receive free admission to the All-Nighter!
If you love a tractor-pulled wagon on a brisk autumn night, then
the Homecoming is a must. Between goofing off in the hay, eating
S'mores cooked on a fire, and drinking some of Mr. Rice's
homemade hot chocolate, you might find some time to take a peek
at one or two of Jupiter's moons. There is always new excitement
every year we go, so make sure you are there!
Dr. Wagner hosts the Physics Club for some Yuletide festivities.
Starting at precisely 3:14:15pm, the afternoon consists of
apple cider, Christmas carols, and crazy mad lib stories.
Come and go as you please, but make sure to enjoy yourself!
What better way to study kinematcis than by testing them out on
a slick surface with friends? When there's a good snow, we get
together and sled until we're chilled and ready to just get some
hot coco by a fire.
The All-Nighter is the club's largest event of the year. We
make ourselves liquid nitrogen ice cream, vacuum cannons,
and explosions to boot. Pizza, movies, and games all night
Return to top
For Physics Day, we invite younger students onto campus.
Besides liquid nitrogen ice cream, the children also
participate in in an egg drop competition, various labs,
and an infared view of their world.
