Rojansky Writing Award

The Rojansky Writing Award is named for Vladimir (Ro) Rojansky, who came to the College as an emeritus professor after retiring from Union College. Following his death, his wife Milla requested that contributions be made to HMC in lieu of flowers, and the Rojansky Award was created from that seed money. Ro was recognized not only for his work in quantum mechanics, but also for his clear and concise writing. The Rojansky Writing Award is given annually for the outstanding term paper in the sophomore quantum mechanics course, Physics 52.
