My favorite professor at Mount Union is Dr. Bob Ekey, assistant professor of physics and chair of the Department of Physics. He’s also my advisor, and I like the fact that I get to work with him every semester by helping him teach Introduction to Physics labs. Dr. Ekey also is on the pre-health professions committee and has given me a lot of advice as it pertains to preparing for the MCAT and applying to medical school.
The universe is a fascinating thing that can easily inspire awe. From a very early age, we learn about stars, planets and other phenomena and sometimes develop an interest that urges us to seek additional information and ask questions. Are we the only planet that supports life? What exists beyond our universe or galaxy? What is it like on Mars, or any other planet for that matter? Astronomy is a science that seeks to provide answers to these questions and many more.
The minor in astronomy is administered by the Department of Physics, which also offers a major in physics.
