Richmond Home


In addition to the outstanding teaching and opportunities for undergraduate research, one of the major strengths of the physics department is the sense of community and dedication to each other that our students and faculty have.

The Richmond chapter of the Society of Physics Students was honored in 2013, 2014, and 2015 with an Outstanding Chapter Award from the national Society of Physics Students organization. The award recognizes the extensive research, social, and outreach activities of the chapter.
