the student government/senate for funds. Emphasize that
it s a national meeting of physics students and professionals
with top-notch speakers (list them). Mention the Trinity
Site trip; a big draw for the physics community, students
and professionals alike. It is also helpful to build in
a contribution by the student and the department with the
proposal--say $100 each or so.
textbooks for a discount and sell them to students.
t-shirts, or physic-y toys or food around campus, at a state
science fair, or at other events.
right before the exams in the freshman
book sale or silent auction.
sale of personal and department junk. Old scientific apparatus
makes fine curiosities.
donuts and coffee in the physics building lobby on a regular
a car wash in winter, especially where they salt the roads.
(Note that many Wal-Marts will match what you make so only
a few cars gets a big profit.)
lawn crew – cut grass and do yard work in surrounding
neighborhood as a group; the work goes quickly and it becomes
a social activity.
pizza slices or cookies in dorms at exam time around mid-night.
