Physics Colloquia

Physics colloquia are normally held every Monday at 4 pm during the quarter (except holidays). Typically one speaker each quarter is nominated by the graduate students. Speakers are invited to meet with the Society of Physics Students at 12:30 for pizza on the day of the colloquium.
