Grad School Workshops
This semester, SPS is hosting series of grad school workshops. Slides from past presentations can be found on our resources
Besides being Planck's constant divided by 2π, h-bars are SPS social events! They can be movie nights, sports, picnics or anything SPS does just for fun. H-bars occur regularly throughout the school year and are planned by the social chair. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org
