Student Perspectives on Studying Abroad
Stephanie FinnvikBy Stephanie Finnvik, Carthage College, Kinosha, WI
Stephanie Finnvik is a member of the Society of Physics Students chapter at Carthage College. She has a unique opportunity to work at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands this summer on an international outreach project. Stephanie will be sending SPS periodic updates on her adventures, so check back later for more entries.

Student Perspectives on Studying Abroad
By Anna Quider, 3rd Year Ph.D Student, University of Cambridge, UK
SPS member Anna Quider, a third year graduate student in astrophysics at the University of Cambridge, UK, blogs about her experiences as an American-trained student working towards a physics Ph.D in the United Kingdom. Her goal is to give US physics students an idea of what itís like to study abroad for a graduate degree, as she knew very little about life as an international grad student before she became one.


Putting a New Face on Physics
Krystle WilliamsBy Krystle Williams, Former SPS Zone 2 Associate Councilor, University of Rochester
SPS National Council member Krystle Williams brings Future Faces of Physics to Symmetry readers. Symmetry is a magazine about particle physics and its connections to other aspects of life and science, from interdisciplinary collaborations to policy to culture. It is published by Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford Linear Accelerator Center.

The Geneva Gazette
Krystle WilliamsBy Katie McAlpine, CERN, Geneva, Switzerland
A glimpse inside CERN, the world's largest particle physics laboratory by Katie McAlpine, a former science writing intern at the American Physical Society (APS). In October 2007, Katie accepted a one-year journalism position at CERN, in Geneva, Switzerland.


Scope: The Student Publication of the Graduate Program in Science Writing at MIT
Established in 2005, Scope showcases the work undertaken by the students in the MIT Graduate Program in Science Writing over the course of their year-long studies. First brought out as a quarterly newsletter, Scope transferred to the web in March 2008. The content in Scope, continually updated, displays the wide range of writing assignments within the program, from news articles and features to essays, book reviews, radio podcasts, and videocasts. Bringing Scope to the web was partially funded by a generous grant from the American Institute of Physics, as part of its Andrew W. Gemant Award presented to Marcia Bartusiak in 2006.

Canadian Undergraduate Physics Journal (CUPJ)
The Canadian Undergraduate Physics Journal (CUPJ) began as an initiative of a group of undergraduate students from across Canada to promote physics research and education nationwide. CUPJ is published three times a year and features submissions written by undergraduate or recently graduated students in both English and French, both in a paper and an on-line format. In addition to research articles refereed by volunteer graduate students and professors, the Journal also includes a section devoted to features, reviews, news, and commentaries relevant to students.
