Announcements and Events


The Physics Department hosts many fine speakers during the academic year. These talks, open to the general public as well as to the Gettysburg College community, serve as a valuable supplement to the regular physics and astronomy programs, exposing listeners and participants to new developments, interesting and novel applications, and historical anecdotes that may not be covered in lectures and laboratories. The atmosphere at colloquia is designed to be casual. Feel free to ask questions and enter into discussions.
