Indian Point Tour

On October 12, eleven medical physics M.S. students and one applied physics senior enjoyed an all-day visit at Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant in Buchanan, New York, hosted by Michael Slobodien of Entergy Nuclear.

Students said:

“Loved the field trip…  I learned things I never picked up in the classroom.”

“Definitely enjoyed seeing the reactor and learning about what kinds of logistical considerations are relevant for nuclear power plants.”  

“The tremendous security built into the system is very impressive.”  

“Our guides were “knowledgeable, kind, and well-prepared for our visit,” and “his talk was super interesting.”
