On April 16, a group represented the Yale Physics Department at the Yale Bulldog Days Academic Fair, which allows Yale College academic departments to present their  programs to the admitted prospective students for the undergraduate class of 2028.

The group included Sarah Demers, professor of physics, director of undergraduate studies, and a member of Yale’s Wright Lab; along with undergraduate students  Aaron Chizhik, Ethan Martinez, and Rose Powers.

Demers said, “We had a successful academic fair this afternoon! We were mostly swamped [the whole time] with eager potential future physics students who wanted to learn about our program.”

Demers continued, “The three undergraduates who joined were invaluable. Students wanted to speak with a faculty member but to also hear straight from our current majors!”

Powers added, “As always, I had a great time staffing the physics table at the academic fair! We had crowds of enthusiastic pre-frosh students coming up to ask questions and share their interests; and I was thrilled to see how many future Yalies are already excited about physics!”

Powers said, “The fair was an indication that the Yale Physics Department will be strong and thriving for many years to come. A huge thanks to Sarah for taking time out of her busy schedule to organize, set up, and run the table.”

According to the Bulldog Days website, “Bulldog Days is Yale’s signature admitted student program. The three-day, two-night program is packed with events and opportunities to connect with current students and future classmates: campus tours, receptions, student group performances, sample classes, undergraduate organization meetings, an academic and extracurricular fair, and plenty of time to explore Yale… Bulldog Days attendees may stay overnight in a residential college suite with a friend or an assigned student host.”
