PhysCon! (and life update)

So this September I started college. It’s been an awesome experience so far, but one of the best parts was an opportunity recently that I was able to take advantage of. Every four years Sigma Pi Sigma and the Society of Physics Students holds the Quadrennial Physics Congress, or PhysCon for short. Through my college’s physics club (which I’m a part of), I was able to attend for a very low price. The entire experience was amazing, from the travel, to being able to meet Nobel laureates. One of my favorite parts was actually the poster session, where students would present posters that showed off research they had done with different universities and professors. It really inspired me to become involved in research at my college. All in all I had an incredible experience, and would readily recommend it to anyone who has an interest in physics.
