Physics and Astronomy Alumni Homecoming Reunion:

Friday, October 17, 2014

Spend an evening renewing acquaintances, refreshing memories, and meeting new friends.

We invite all BYU Physics and Astronomy alumni and their spouse to join us for a special Physics and Astronomy homecoming reunion on Friday October 17, 2014.

The schedule of events is below.  All events except BYU's Homecoming Spectacular are free of charge and open to all of our alumni and their spouses (as well as those of our current students who submitted a research slide for the reception), but you need to RSVP by Friday October 10 ((801) 422-4361 or physalum@byu.edu) so that we know how many people to prepare for.

  • Buffet Dinner and Reception: 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the Eyring Science Center's Pendulum Court

    Enjoy a buffet dinner while you chat with old friends and get to know the current faculty and students.  This dinner is free of charge and open to all, but we would appreciate knowing if you are coming so that we can make a better guess as to how much food we will need.  If you like, you make take a look at some pictures from the reception we held in  2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, or 2003.
     

  • Planetarium Shows: 4:45 and 5:30 p.m. in the Eyring Science Center Planetarium

    The department's astronomical society will put on two special half-hour planetarium shows for Physics and Astronomy alumni and family/friends.  Our planetarium is top notch with full-dome digital projectors.  This show is free of charge, but we would like you to let us know if you plan to attend so that we have an idea of what size of group to expect. 
     

  • Physics Demonstration Shows: 4:45 and 5:30 p.m. in the Eyring Science Center 

    Clark Snelgrove will present two half-hour physics demo shows. Come and see exciting and intriguing demonstrations of physics principles. The shows free of charge, but we would like you to let us know if you plan to attend so that we have an idea of what size of group to expect. 
     

  • Homecoming Spectacular: 7:30 p.m. in the Marriott Center

    This event has been very entertaining in the past, and we expect another good show this year.  More information about this year's performance can be found at the BYU Homecoming Web Page. We have our own seating for the Spectacular. Tickets range from $14 to $25. Our alumni can get a discount for lower seats at the Thursday show. Contact us at the email address or phone number above for details on buying the tickets.

    You may choose to participate in any or all of the successive events. We do hope that you can join us for a good time together.  Spread the word and encourage fellow alumni to take advantage of this opportunity.

    Contact the Department of Physics and Astronomy at (801) 422-4361 or email physalum@byu.edu to make reservations or if you have questions.

     


     

    If you can't make it to homecoming this year, you can send a postcard to the address below.  We'll post these on a board so that your fellow classmates can read where you are and what you are up to.  See you in October!
