Astro 16 students are members of the Department of Physics and Astronomy, and are encouraged to participate in department activities beyond the classroom. This includes attending regular talks – colloquia given by visiting scientists. Check the department colloquium schedule to see if there's a talk this week. You'll find titles and descriptions of the talks, which are generally on Fridays at lunchtime.
You can also attend, and help out with, the monthly telescope open houses at the Peter van de Kamp Observatory, on the roof of the Science Center. This activity is optional. The next observatory open house is on Tuesday, December 13 at 8 pm.
