Shout Out to Prospective Students

One of my goals for this blog is to provide a window into the physics department for prospective students interested in physics or engineering who are considering whether to come to Richmond.   Are you reading?  Is anybody out there?  Please drop me a quick comment here (or fire me an email if you’d rather) to let me know that you’re reading.  You can also ask a question, or tell me if there’s anything you’d particularly like to see here.  Thanks!  –Matt

  1. Hi Matt,

    I’m reading! I run a company that helps students make productive visits to college campuses. A big part of that is arranging opportunities for them to meet with faculty in their proposed area of study. Is it possible to put you on my list of contacts for U of R so that I can send prospective physicists your way when they’re on campus?



  2. Mary–
    Yes, please add me to your list of contacts. The physics faculty here are always happy to meet with prospective students when they visit.
