Internship: APS ComPADRE (Physics To Go/PTEC)
Introduction

Hello everyone,

My name is Andrew Coughlin. I am a junior at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. In the spring of '08 I plan to graduate with a double major in Physics and Astronomy. When it comes to SPS I am basically a newcomer. However I enjoy the meetings as well as attending the guest lectures that our chapter hosts. Like most of you I am finishing up a pretty hard semester and I can't wait for summer to come. This summer will be a big change for me but I am excited to move out to D.C. and meet everyone. I have been to Washington D.C. before but I was around 8 years old. I will certainly be doing some sightseeing with my free time.

My interests include all the standards. I like a wide variety of music and spending time with good friends (plus making new ones). I am a fan of any good movie but for some reason I get a kick out of the really terrible ones. I also like to sit down and play a good card game. Most recently my lovely girlfriend Ali and I have picked up playing Euchre. I am a sports fan and I enjoy being outside. I spent my childhood summers playing baseball (GO CUBBIES!) Then in High School I switched over to tennis and golf. If you're ever looking to play something just let me know.

Let me wrap up by saying once again how much this opportunity means to me. I look forward to meeting everyone! If anyone has any questions feel free to email me back.

-Andrew Coughlin
