Physics professor Ryan Haaland announced as 2014-15 Featured Scholar

Growing up on a farm in Minnesota might not seem like the obvious beginning of a scientist’s life, but Dr. Ryan Haaland can trace the genesis of his future career path to those early days. Dr. Haaland is a professor of physics and the winner of the 2014-15 FLC Featured Scholar Award.

“I was always breaking and taking things apart on the farm,” he recalls. “So I think that’s where I got my curiosity for science and technological things.”

The stamp of approval for FLC Engineering comes just as the College is breaking ground for a new Geosciences, Physics and Engineering building.

Students aid professor researching lightning on the edge of space

Ask any of the 275 students in the Physics & Engineering Department at Fort Lewis College what a “sprite” is, and they’re probably not going to tell you it’s a soft drink or a green fairy from a mythical land. Their responses might be something more like this:

“A ghostly flash above the clouds.”

“Violent, beautiful bursts of energy.”

“Vertical, red-orangery lightning.”

“A rare occurrence.”

New Geosciences, Physics and Engineering Building an investment in the future

Demolition began on a section of Berndt Hall that will be the new home of the Fort Lewis College Geosciences, Physics, and Engineering (GPE) Building. The new building will be three times larger than the old structure, which was built in 1968. Completion of the new facility is expected in fall 2016.
