Are you sorely lacking updates about the Physics Club? Are you heartbroken to have missed the last observatory night? Have you been waiting for a one-stop shop for physics news?
This month, IU South Bend’s Physics Club debuted their monthly newsletter, which contains information about upcoming events, past events, the leadership team and more. The goal of this project is to spread awareness about the opportunities happening on campus and in our community related to physics education.

The Physics Club is for all students, regardless of their major, and aims to raise awareness and bring enthusiasm to scientific events. This club provides an informal setting in which students who are interested in physics may come together and form a community.
The co-presidents for the club are Preston Porter and Emilee Edmonds. The treasurer and secretary are Joel Rael and Phillip Derrickson. The faculty advisor is Dr. Henry Scott, a Professor and Chair of the Physics and Astronomy department at Indiana University South Bend.
“This Physics Club is focused on providing a supportive and friendly community for students interested in physics and/or astronomy,” Edmonds, who developed the newsletter, said. “Our meetings and events require very little knowledge of physics concepts.”
One of the main reason for this is so that all students can have access to and enjoy this club without the stress of learning all physics concepts.
Physics club meets on the third Tuesday of every month (Jan. 17, Feb. 21, Mar. 21 and Apr. 18) at 5:00 p.m. in Northside 0063. They also plan to host many other events throughout the semester, such as Science Alive at the Public Library and a dodgeball game in the SAC. All events will be posted on Titan Atlas.
