# Tate Laboratory

I am at the University of Minnesota, my alma mater (BS Physics, 2003), to monitor the NOvA experiment from the remote control room here.

As I walk through a place with so many memories, the most striking sight so far has been the Tate Laboratory of Physics. I took my introductory physics classes as an undergraduate there, and conducted my first particle physics research there (searching for $D^{0} \rightarrow K^{+} \pi^{-} \eta$). In many ways, this is the place where I first became a physicist.As you can see, a large section of it has been demolished as part of a renovation project. While I was surprisingly pained to see Tate in this state, I hope it will be even better when it is finished.
