Physics and Astronomy Student Society PASS-- Physics Astronomy Student Society



Social Events




The Physics and Astronomy Student Society (PASS) is a peer support system that is setup for you. PASS is organized to provide physics and/or astronomy students with contacts, tutors, and information about anything physics related on and off campus.

This society organizes social events to provide students with the opportunity to meet teachers, grad students, and other peers in an enjoyable, relaxed environment.

PASS is a collection of engaging undergraduate students who have similar interests and are taking the same courses as you. Enrich your university experience by interacting with PASS and your faculty to create a better learning atmosphere for us all.
