Welcome to the Berkeley Physics Undergraduate Wiki! This site is run by the undergraduate community of Physics majors here at Cal, primarily members of SPS (Society of Physics Students). You can find these lovely folks in the Directory. The Wiki is designed to be a resource for current undergraduates, incoming freshmen considering a Physics major, prospective students who want to learn more about the Physics community here, or really just anyone who stumbles upon this glorious page. The Curriculum Page may be of particular interest to some of you, in that page we summarize the classes in the Physics major and provide some professor reviews. There is also a page dedicated to the important but daunting task of finding research. Please feel free to explore all the Wiki has to offer, and feel free to get in touch with some of the students if you have any other questions!

To access the information in this wiki, you can use the navigation panel to the left, explore the links below, or use the search bar above.
