Physics Alumni Reception on October 21, 2005
Thanks very much to those of you who were able to attend our
physics alumni reunion reception, held in Varian Physics on Friday,
October 21, 2005, as part of the Reunion Homecoming Weekend. The
Physics department reception was attended by approximately 25 physics
alumni, in addition to a number of Physics faculty, staff and current
students. Professors Douglas Osheroff and Giorgio Gratta were in
attendance to meet with some of their former students and colleagues.
The celebratory event provided a wonderful opportunity for alumni,
faculty, and staff to mix and mingle. It was very nice to catch
up with former students, and we hope that you will enjoy viewing these
pictures of the event. Please look for announcements of future
alumni events, and plan to attend!
