Class of 2016

Physics and Mathematic major, Astronomy minor

I am Josiah Lapolla. I am currently a Senior Physics and Mathematics major with a minor in astronomy. I have loved every minute of my time here at JMU; I definitely bleed purple and gold! I am a very enthusiastic and energetic person when I have some sleep under my belt and always have new ideas for how to improve upon the status quo. I intend on pursuing my doctorate degree in theoretical astrophysics after graduating with my bachelors. I have a variety of hobbies including snowboarding, skydiving, and hanging with my friends and discussing new ideas. Physics and astronomy are my absolute passions and I am always open to talking about them and sharing my love of the subjects with anyone interested!
