Otherwise, feel free to ask me anything, anytime! I'm always up for a chat, even if I'm upside down somewhere in a club... You'll get used to the nonsense we do in PhysSoc ??  My email address is if you need to contact me, or, you can message me on Facebook!

Female Social Secretary: Natalie Rhodes

Hello! I’m Natalie, I’m in my 3rd year of Msc Physics and I will be your female social secretary this year.

My job is firstly to help organise Physsoc’s legendary events and secondly to help you get the most out of Physsoc.  I will be here to help you meet other likeminded people and enjoy events that are suited to your tastes- be that drinking or non-drinking. 

Over the course of this year you should hopefully become familiar with my face from selling you tickets in the common room to helping you find your way around Nottingham during our evenings out.

Have any ideas for events or any concerns? Feel free to email me at or add me on Facebook ‘Natalie Rhodes’.

I hope you enjoy a Physsoc filled year!

Male Social Secretary: Seb Coleman

Hi I’m Seb, a third year physics student, and your male social secretary for this academic year. Right from the start of my time at UoN, the community aspect within physics really stuck out to me. Our course and society is an amazing platform for making many strong friendships, which is important, because 14 hours in the library trying to meet coursework deadlines is ever so slightly nicer when shared.

It’s my job to create the events that bring us all together and strengthen the physsoc community. These may involve donning your galaxy print on one of our legendary bar crawls, or diving into ball pits at play-zone. Whatever it is that you want to do with physsoc, I’ll try my best to see it happen so that we can all have the best year possible. I want everybody to feel like they have a say in how the next year plays out, so if you have any suggestions for something you want to do, or any questions at all, feel free to message me on facebook (Seb Coleman) or drop me an email (

Trip Secretary: Liv Buckingham

Hey guys! I'm Liv and I'll be your Trip Sec this year. I'm in my third year studying straight physics, and when I'm not doing that, I’ll be planning the December PhysSoc Trip and the Summer CERN Trip (both of which you should all totally go on)! If you have any questions about PhysSoc, or anything really, you're more than welcome to email me at or just shoot me a message on Facebook.

Sports Secretary: Sunny Luhar

Hey guys! I’m Sunny and have just moved into my second year at Nottingham. I’ll be the person who manages all the Physsoc sports teams and ensuring they run smoothly. We currently have Men’s Football, Men’s rugby, Mixed hockey, mixed basketball and Women’s netball. There will be tournaments between societies throughout the year. The Physsoc sports teams are completely free to join and participate in. If there is anything I can help you out with or if you want to play another sport, message me on Facebook on one of the Physsoc pages or email me at and I’ll try my best to help you out!
