This week the Duke Physics department welcomes 16 new graduate students to the program for fall of 2010. These 16 students were accepted out of a pool of almost 200 applicants and they will be the first to experience the department's new graduate curriculum. Students in the incoming class have come from five countries and their research interests represent a variety of physics sub-disciplines. This week they are attending both University-wide and Departmental Orientations in order to acclimate themselves to our Duke community. Congratulations to the incoming class of 2010!
