French Connection Helps Student Unite Interests in Physics, Art

Janet Rafner came to the University of Virginia with a wide array of interests and a list of fields of study that she wanted to explore, chief among them physics and art.

Before she made her college decision, Rafner visited and met with physics professor Blaine Norum, who encouraged her to pursue her interest in physics; with that encouragement and a visit to the art studio, she felt at home on Grounds.

“Everything felt right,” she recalled recently, as she prepared to walk the Lawn at Saturday’s Final Exercises.
