The University of Mississippi

Welcome to PGSA Webpage

    The Physics Graduate Students Association (PGSA) of the University of Mississippi provides a common platform for all the graduate students in Physics & Astronomy Department. We are a student-led, student-run organization at the University of Mississippi intended to enhance the welcoming atmosphere for graduate students who are learning and working at the Department of Physics & Astronomy to foster close cooperation between students themselves and faculty, and to facilitate graduate student communication.

    We will be organizing monthly meetings with the emphasis of giving opportunity to our graduate students to express themselves, presenting their research work, matters related to academic as well as other matters that we can help out as the graduate student association.

    We also promote and supports the diversity and multicultural atmosphere to make PGSA a place for our students to get some relief after their hard-working time. We will also be conducting interdepartmental and outreach events, cooperating with student organizations of other schools, that our graduate students can enhance their leadership and organizational skills as well as to collect good values to our organization and the department of Physics & Astronomy.
