Join us for our first SWiP Chat of the year on Friday, September 27 at 4:30 in PRB 4138. We will be discussing implicit bias and how it impacts women in physics. We hope to see you there!
Today, the department welcomed a new crop of first years to the program – we’re glad you’re here!

Come and de-stress during midterm week! There will be cute and cuddly kittens at the Physics Research Building atrium on Tuesday October 11th from 6-8pm.
Join us for an informal dinner with Anna Merkle to discuss how she transitioned from academia to industry.
Anna has her Ph.D. in Chemistry from University of Michigan and is working on her MBA at OSU.
Please RSVP for dinner below:
On Friday, April 29, 2016, SWiP will be hosting a luncheon with physics professors from the department Jim Beatty and Amy Connolly. Both are married to a fellow academic (in physics and outside of physics) at Ohio State. They’ll discuss how they handled the job market in the search of two coinciding academic jobs (a common scenario in the so-called “two-body problem”). Please RSVP by Wednesday, April 27th if you would like to receive lunch! If you miss the deadline, feel free to bring a lunch and attend the discussion. We hope to see you there!
SWiP will start holding weekly, casual meetups to foster community and discuss plans more efficiently – we’re calling them SWiP Chip Chats (for the snack we have in abundance right now). Currently, we’re having them on Thursdays at 4 pm in 1136 PRB. Each month, one of the time spots will be converted to a formal SWiP general meeting.
Hope you can stop by!
SWIP recently helped fund-raise money to provide graphing calculators to local high school student and the project was a success!
