Tougaloo students visit Ole Miss

Students from Tougaloo college visited the Department of Physics and Astronomy on 9/25/2012. Besides meeting our faculty they took a walk around campus (including a tour of the National Center for Physical Acoustics and of the Center for Manufacturing Excellence) and heard about career opportunities in physics and other STEM disciplines. This visit was supported in part by Emanuele’s NSF CAREER Award.

This is a picture of the whole group, including amazing Dr. Donald Cole (watch this video!), around James Meredith’s statue. This is a special year for Ole Miss: we are commemorating the 50th anniversary of the enrollment of James Meredith with a series of events on Opening the Closed Society.

The building you can see in the back is the Physics Department (Lewis Hall).
