Thanks very much to those of you who were able to attend our special 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!
Dear Physics Alumni,
On behalf of the Physics Department, I wish to cordially invite each of you to attend a special physics alumni reunion reception on the Stanford campus during Reunion Homecoming Weekend.
If you are celebrating a reunion year in 2005, and would like more details on the Reunion Homecoming events and lectures, please go to the reunion website: http://www.stanfordalumni.org/erc/reunions/rh05cwoqs.html. One of these events, entitled "Classes without Quizzes" includes a lecture entitled, "Breaking Through: Science and the Nature of Discovery" which will be given by our former Physics Dept. Chair, Prof. Douglas Osheroff, on Sat., October 22 at 10:00 AM.
On Friday, October 21, from 5:30-7:00 PM, the Physics Department will host a special reception for all Physics alumni in the Varian Physics lobby. Please stop by for some refreshments and meet up with your classmates and with our physics faculty. You may also find some of your student-era professors at this reception. We hope that you will join us for what promises to be a very enjoyable occasion.
If there is anything or anyone in particular that you would like to see in our department, or if you have any questions, please contact my assistant, Jenifer Conan-Tice, at (650) 723-4347. We hope to see you on October 21!
