PGSA (Physics Graduate Student Association)

PGSA is active throughout the academic year. PGSA runs a variety of social and academic activities for our graduate students, including Physics Phridays Ice Cream Socials, brown-bag lunches with faculty members, a biweekly movie night, a physics graduate student colloquium, a PGSA picnic each semester, a barbecue for incoming students at the beginning of the year, and a basketball tournament. The PGSA also sponsors a department softball team, the “Wild Bohrs,”which plays in a Champaign-Urbana city league.
