Butler Logo Society for Physics Students


Here are some links to physics sites that may be of use.


American Institute of Physics AIP has tons of information including employment and education statistics, news, events, speakers, special topics, and much more.
American Physical Society Similar in content to AIP.

Grad School

Grad School Shopper Contains tons of data sheets for the physics and astrophysics graduate programs out there. This is going to be something you'll want to spend a lot of time with as you begin to think about grad school.
My own data sheet on grad schools We have old official GRE Physics exams in the department. Ask Dr. Kosik or Dr. Murphy about where to find them! Do not use the purple book by REA, it's terrible.
Physics GRE Yahoo Group for hints on preparing for the evil test.
PhysicsGRE.com Another Physics GRE prep site.
WhoGotIn.com A list of when people hear back from graduate schools so that you can know when to expect to hear back yourself.

Summer Research

Research Experiences for Undergraduates This is something you will want to look at! REUs are a great way to get research experience. They are summer programs held at schools across the nation, and they pay you.


American Geophysical Union Pretty self-explanatory.
Physical Reference Data Any physics information that you could ever need but are too lazy to look up in the CRC. Constants, spectra, atomic characteristics, half lives, etc.
Visual Phyics Check this out if you're a visual learner and are having trouble with more abstract ideas.
Physics 2000 Similar to above, though over more advanced topics.
