What do Hope physics alumni do?
One of the first things visitors ask is "What do your alumni do?" The answer is often something like "Whatever they have a passion to do!" While this is true, it is a bit vague. We've compiled lists of companies for which our alumni have worked and job titles our alumni have held over the years. But that seems rather impersonal. We're profiling some of our alumni in department newsletters and adding their profiles to our website.
"Studying physics at Hope was an extraordinary experience. The degree program is broad and comprehensive, but the true strength of Hope's physics department is the professors and their approach to teaching and interacting with students. The opportunity to be involved in read, graduate-level research as a junior and senior allowed me to apply the classroom lessons to real-world problems and prepared me for graduate school better than the average entering graduate student with little or no research experience. But even that is not the most significant part of the Hope experience. The friendships I forged with other students and especially the faculty have persisted to this day. Hope faculty are now professional colleagues and collaborators of mine. Hope is truly a unique place to 'do' physics." Dr. Donald Peterson, Ph.D. Research Associate, Oregon State University
