Events with the UM-Flint Physics Department

The Physics department holds regular events and seminars to inform students, staff, and faculty about current studies and events in physics and astronomy. Our events are tailored to a variety of audiences with differing experience levels – because when it comes to learning about the makings of the universe, we always have more to learn! Check back soon to find out more about our upcoming virtual events!

"How a Physics Education Prepared Me for Success" with David Zick

Friday, February 19, 2021, from 1-2PM


Meeting ID: 975 6769 5564

Ever since graduation, David has supported UM-Flint, and more specifically, the physics and engineering department. Many students have benefitted from scholarships, research awards, internships, and learning centers he has funded. David will talk anecdotally about his life journey and highlight how his physics education prepared him for success.  He will highlight:

  • How being “connected” can help grow your career
  • How a “Slight Edge” results in exponential growth
  • Why you should continue to learn throughout life
  • Why you should be prepared to take advantage of opportunities
  • How important it is to give back

Join Us Friday, 11/13 to Welcome Back Jeff Kabel!
