It looks the the University of Idaho is not going to close its physics department after all — according to an article in the university’s student paper.
Instead of vanishing the department looks set to boost the number of undergraduate students from 28 this year to 100 in a few years time — said Wei Jiang Yeh, chair of the physics department.
You may recall that the university had placed physics on a list of departments that could be axed.
Common sense has prevailed.
