The Department of Physics offers students the opportunity to participate in a variety of clubs and organizations that promote academic and professional growth, and, more importantly, connect students to peers who want to have fun and build upon their passions. Recognized student clubs and organizations affiliated with Physics and Astronomy are listed below: Physics Club Established in 1993, the Physics Club at Whittier College promotes both an interest in physics and lifelong friendships among the club members—not all of whom are majors in the field. Over the years, the club has sponsored the highly anticipated astronomy "star party," which involves overnight camping in the desert or in the mountains, faculty vs. student volleyball games, movie nights, lectures by astronomers and physics professionals, bowling nights, and several other social and academic events. The only requirements to join Physics Club are an interest in physics and a willingness to have fun!
