What’s PhysCon like? Watch this or this!

In 2016, PhysCon brought together 1200 physics undergraduate students, graduate students, alumni, and faculty to address common concerns for the discipline and for us as a community. Many attendees are student leaders who are active in physics research and/or community outreach. Attendees also included many student advisors, mentors, and physics department chairs. Just us for this unique and exciting opportunity to reach the next generation of physicists with opportunities for graduate school, internships, volunteer programs, and more.
