Hello, Applied Physics Alumni!

First off, feel free to drop by and let us know what great things are going on for you!  We love it when former students brag about what they've accomplished!

This page is to honor you Applied Physics majors and minors who worked so hard to get through the program. After all the late nights working in the Optics Room and drinking energy drinks on the bench outside of SCI2, we hope that your experiences with us have been meaningful.

Send Dr. T an email to be added to the alumni listserv at Physmail, and keep us posted on your current whereabouts for this page!
