MSUM students are doing amazing things. Our students embrace diversity, challenges, opportunities, unique experiences and continue to produce incredible results. Our students participate in student organizations, attend and present at regional and national conferences, compete at regional and national competitions, collaborate on faculty-mentored projects, gain hands-on experience through internships, help coordinate community service projects, and more. Many have won prestigious scholarships for academic excellence and many have won awards for their stellar work inside and outside of the classroom.

Points of Pride
Victoria Honetschlager, Physics, Medical Physics Emphasis
“There is constant contact, and you really get to know your professors. I have received a lot of support from them. It has been a really great experience.”
“Being a part of the Society of Physics Students has been really great. This will be the 3rd year I’ve been a part of it. Last year I was the President. We’ve done a couple of field trips and we went to visit graduate schools. We have a pretty tight-knit community, and the teachers are awesome.""It’s a good atmosphere here. I think the teachers really care about the students. It’s not a huge school, so you get to know your teachers in your major. They know your name, they say hi. They really care. They really try to make sure the student is doing everything they can so that when they leave MSUM, they have as many opportunities as possible.”
