"It's all about room 1057 in the
Dennison Building," said LSA junior
Megan Novicki, the publicity officer
of SAS. She and many of the other
students spend most of their free
time in 1057.
"I come here to do my homework
rather than going to the library,
because here there
is always one of us "d1
working on the n
same problems," welcome
Novicki said.
Dan Berman, an as they
LSA senior, said
that because the Interest

it's nice to know field.
that you can come
to a place where
you're guaranteed
to have others around you who are
studying the same thing.
The society is especially helpful
for first-year students and sopho-
mores <None>who are thinking
about becoming astronomy majors.
Society members offer advice about
classes, research opportunities and
even internships.
"Because the astronomy depart-
ment is so small, we all have the
chance to work closely with the fac-
ulty," said Brent Fisher, a recent LSA
graduate who is now one of the SAS

advisors. While he was a student
here, Fisher felt that the society
helped him establish close friend-
ships with both students and profes-
sors. As D'Onofrio said, "I know all
the professors and graduate students
and they know me."
Dave Kouvhnerkauth, an LSA first-
year student who is deciding whether
to take an astronomy class next fall,
said that he found out about the soci-

The Student
Astronomical Society
meets every other
Wednesday at 5 p.m. in
room 1057 of the
Dennison building,
in addition to its regu-
lady scheduled activi-
ties, the SAS hosts
open houses at the
Angell Hall
Observatory. The next
open house will take
place March 13.
To get there, enter
Angell Hall through the
front door, off State
Street, then climb the
right-hand staircase. At
the top is a door that
leads to the roof and
the Observatory. This
door is unlocked when
the Observatory is
open.
The Student Astronomical Society
is open to any student interested in
astronomy.
"Anyone is welcome as long as
they have an interest in the field, are
ready to be challenged and want to
make new friends," D'Onofrio said.

like to learn more about it.
Novicki said that she likes the
society because it allows her to net-
work. Her friends are there and she
likes the relaxed atmosphere that she
finds when hanging out in 1057
Dennison.
"It's not like all we do is astronomy
homework when we hang out here. We
like getting together because the soci-
ety has given many of us close friend-
ships," D'Onofrio said.
