The Cal Poly physics department has approximately 130 majors. During the academic year, most of them can be found studying, emailing, socializing (or sleeping) in their dedicated student room, known as "h-bar," (52-E25) which is near the main physics department office.
Society of Physics Students (SPS)
There is a fairly active SPS chapter on campus. Most of their activities can be found at their student run "SPS" web site. You can find the website here and the email.
Cal Poly Women in Physics (CPWiP)
The Cal Poly Women in Physics: Here are the website and email.
Cal Poly Astronomy Club
The Cal Poly Astronomy Club is a student-run organization that meets, socializes, and observes things astronomical using the telescopes in the Cal Poly Observatory. Contact via email.
Resources for Physics Majors
See some student work from "Quantum Lab"
To showcase some student work, we recently began filming students discussing their favorite experiment in "quantum lab." Here are some results (posted on YouTube). As a Cal Poly physics major, you too will work on and be able to discuss such complex physics experiments! Click here to see the videos.
"Quantum lab" is a junior-level, year-long sequence of lab courses focusing students on experimental physics (Phys 340, 341, and 342). Students are put in front of rather complicated equipment each week, and asked to independently run the experiment and then produce a publication-quality report on it.
