Mid October - Fall Welcome BBQ 
This is a great opportunity to meet and greet your peers in optics! There will be free food for all. If you're a first year and are interested in learning more about a particular optics/photonics research group, this is the perfect time to ask lab members about their work!

Mid October - Laser Tag
The optical society is making a trip to test the applications of IR laser diodes for short- to medium-range sensing - that is, playing laser tag! We'll be carpooling to Laser Quest on Sunday, and be gone from around 3:30 to 5. It's first-come-first-serve, so sign up at! ($10 co-pay, gas reimbursed for carpools)
