Hey PhySoc. I’m Prudence, a second year and your VP and treasurer this year. In this dual role I’ll be assisting the president and proving another point of contact for you as well as looking after the accounts. I’d really love PhySoc to provide as many academic and social opportunities this year as possible so if you have any ideas, questions or suggestions for fundraising, what you’d like to see more of or for PhySoc in general please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me email@example.com
Hope to hear from you soon.
In my role as careers officer this year I shall be continuing the excellent precedent set by previous officers in the organising of talks of extra curricular interest such as the mysteries of the universe talks and also those more directly careers related, such as presentations from employers looking for physicists. Something else intended is to improve communication with physics students about the availability and logistics of summer placements, its no small coincidence that so many Southampton students get onto the SEPNET placement scheme given they run a talk here every year. Expanding this kind of attention to other placement schemes (only those who do not mind us advertising them of course) open to physicists will hopefully be beneficial to the general body of students, especially perhaps those in lower years.
If there is a specific company or application of physics you wish a careers talk to be organised for please email firstname.lastname@example.org
and we’ll add it to the pool of ideas.
Hi everyone, I’m Charlie and I’m in my third year studying Physics. I’m the secretary for the committee which means apart from sitting there looking pretty I keep a note of everything that’s discussed. I’m also one of the first ports of call if you need to contact anyone so don’t hesitate to email me (email@example.com) if you’re not sure who else you should be emailing!
Hey guys, I’m your Outreach Officer. Outreach is all about using the link we have with our wider community to inspire people and show how exciting physics is!
This year, we’ll be continuing to work with schools to inspire the next generation of physicists. As well as this, we’ll be holding more events on campus for students at the University, among many other exciting things.
If you’d like to get involved, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hi! My name is Amy Ennion, you may remember that I was your sports’ officer last year, and I’m going to be your president this year. My role on the society is very varied- I run the committee meetings, help and support the other members of the committee in their roles and ensure the smooth running of the society as a whole. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Hey, I’m Christine, and I’m in 2nd year studying Physics with Space Science. Funky. I’m your new publicity officer this year. I am the link between PhySoc and you, keeping you thoroughly informed of everything that’s happening through this website, weekly newsletters and social media. I will also be in charge of PhySoc fashion, bringing you snazzy new hoodies to wear wherever you fancy. If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you.
Hi everyone, my names Adrian and alongside George I am working as one of your careers officers for this year. I’m currently in my third year of an Mphys with nanotech course. As your careers officers we will endeavor to bring in companies you will (hopefully) be interested in to give talks to you to help you with your future career decisions!
As well as this we plan to organise further lectures in the series ‘Unsolved Mysteries of the Universe’ which proved to be really popular last year. Keep an eye on the physoc calendar for details!
Any career related queries or questions feel free to email us on email@example.com!
Hey guys! I’m Connie! I’m the new Mentors Rep. In past years this hasn’t been the best known role but I am planning to change this.
As Mentors Rep it is my responsibility to make it possible for you to get the help you need with the course. With the assistance of lovely people from all years, the mentoring system is here to provide friendly and reliable help when you need it. So, if one of the modules is making you feel out of your depth, find me on Facebook, in the Physoc Library or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I’ll get back to you.
Hey guys, my name is Neil and I’m a second year studying straight physics. I’m your new sports officer, and its my responsibility to make sure all our intramural competitions and leagues run smoothly. Keep an eye on the sports section of the noticeboard in the lobby of the physics building for new sign up sheets etc, and I’ll also be active on facebook for organisational purposes and for input on how physics sports can be improved. I’ll be trying to organise as many teams and events as I can, so watch this space!
My role in Physoc is representing the post graduate research students. Involving these experienced students with Physoc encourages mentoring, as well as letting the PhD students have some fun by socialising with and getting to know the undergrads.
My name is Joshua Smith and since October I have been acting as the Freshers Rep for Physoc. I’m currently in my first year studying physics.
My role is to keep the first years updated on the goings on in Physoc and to drag them along if necessary. If ever I start a sentence with “would you like to…” they run away now. The main part of my job is to get the next generation of first years involved in Physoc in September but since they are not here yet I’ll have to make do with my year.
Ahoy hoy everyone, I’m Tom and it’s my job to take care of our balls for the following year. The summer and Christmas balls are a great way to let loose at the end of the semester, so I’d encourage everyone to be there, the more the merrier after all. I’m open to suggestions so e-mail me (email@example.com) if you have any preferences on the way your balls are handled! That’s basically it apart from an apology for the puns, but I just couldn’t help myself…
Hi, I’m Leigh, current second year, and I’m one of your new Events Officers! I’ll be organising some great events for you guys with the other social sec, “some guy called Robin”, to get you all involved, socialising on nights out and getting to know each other. We will aim to have a good mixture of classic PhySoc socials and of course some of our own new ideas. I have been on most of the previous socials so I know what how to ensure you all have a great time.
Hi, I’m Robin and with the other events officer, Leigh, we are the guys that are going to organise your socials and events. Our aim is to get everyone involved and have some diversity within the socials. We are intending to bring in a few new socials this year, to make us a more rounded society, with all of the years involved. Finally, we will obviously be keeping to the strict traditions of a huge White T-shirt Social and the Big Bang.
If you have any ideas on what you fancy this year, get hold of us at firstname.lastname@example.org
