Department retreat

2021 Physics Department Retreat

The 2021 retreat was held both in-person in Hixson-Lied G04 and via zoom for those who could not attend in-person. Because of the pandemic our usual two-day retreat, was shortened to a 3-hour meeting.

We enjoyed an ice-breaker led by our SPS officers, an introduction by Fr. Larry Gillick, S.J. and small and large-group discussions. Our subject was burnout and fatigue and featured a panel of physics department faculty.

We are looking forward to returning to a full retreat next year!
