1. Our official hours are 9 AM ­to 5 PM.

2. You must sign in + out whenever you enter or exit the lounge. Logbook is on the table closest to the entrance.

3. Masks must be worn at all times. This also means no eating in the lounge for now.

If you are currently an undergraduate student, please take some time to fill out our survey regarding 2020-2021 course delivery. Your feedback is very valuable to us and will be shared with the Physics Department so that they can optimize course delivery this semester and in the future. We will summarize the results of the survey and publish them for students to see as well. All responses are anonymous, though you may provide your email address for the chance to win an online gift card!

If you are a member of our Discord server, please take a couple minutes to fill out a short survey about the server. We appreciate your feedback and will be using it to make the server more accommodating and engaging.
