Graduation Celebration 2016
The faculty of the Department of Physics and Astronomy is joining with the students receiving degrees in 2016 and their families to honor their achievements and celebrate their graduation.
The celebration will begin with an informal social gathering with light hors d'oeuvres which will be held in the space between the department and the Physics Lecture Hall (PLH) if the weather is good and in the PLH lobby if it is not. We will then move to the PLH for brief (5-10 minute) presentations by department chair Bob Bartynski and alumnus Professor Tim Koeth (Director, UMD Nuclear Reactor and Radiation Facilities -- he led the building of the Rutgers Cyclotron as an undergrad), which will be followed by an individual recognition of every graduating/graduated major. We will conclude with a group picture.
We plan to document this event by taking and publishing photos. Photographs taken at the Senior Celebration may be used on our department website and Facebook pages as well as other Rutgers websites and social media.
We hope to set up a site where everyone can share pictures from the celebration. Details will be forthcoming.
