MAY 5, 2006--Ten students at the University of Wisconsin – River
Falls were inducted into Sigma Pi Sigma, a national physics honorary society,
on April 22. A banquet and reception were held on the same day to honor
the new inductees and their families.
Founded in 1921, Sigma Pi Sigma is a member of the Association of College
Honor Societies and has more than 75,000 members worldwide. Undergraduates
must be in the upper one-third of their class and have completed at least
three semesters of full-time college work and three semester courses in
physics to be considered for membership. Students who are not physics
majors may be members, but must have a demonstrated interest in the field
of physics. Inductees receive membership for life.
"As life-long members of Sigma Pi Sigma these students will remain
connected to the physics community no matter what career path they might
follow," says Earl Blodgett, professor of physics and UW-RF alumnus.
The following students were inducted at the April 22 ceremony:
Matthew Blodgett, Boyceville
Ann Deml, Medford
Alex Dix, Amery
Jonathan Eisch, Wisconsin Rapids
Brian Estervig, River Falls
Adam Lewis, Plover
Daniel Musekamp, Oshkosh
Joel Sanderson, New Richmond
David Fairchild, Maple Grove
