"My experience in the WashU physics department has been truly a great one. I'm lucky to be surrounded by great scientists who encourage me every day to become a better physicist, by kind people who make me feel like a part of the big physics family, and by friends who have been supportive and helpful throughout my journey here. The department hosts many events that are fruitful both academically and socially, from weekly seminars and colloquia to picnics and luncheons, we are frequently given the opportunity to interact with others, and actively learn about new ground-breaking research."
