Nathan Rasmussen, Physics & Astronomy, 2010

April 19, 2012

Going to HSU to study physics was the best decision I've made in my adult life. Not only did it give me confidence in my problem solving abilities, but the faculty is amazing. I was able to do research with Dr. Hoyle and not only publish a paper, but gave a conference talk and a few others about the research. I was hired to teach physics labs after graduation, and now I am about to start a PhD program at Washington State University. Studying at HSU has been an amazing experience!
