Symmetry Magazine, an online publication about particle physics, profiled the BHSU Underground Campus at Sanford Lab recently. The article highlights student and faculty involvement in underground physics and biology research.   

The Black Hills State University Underground Campus at Sanford Underground Research Facility was featured recently in Symmetry Magazine, an online publication about particle physics.

Titled "A Mile Deep Campus," the article follows BHSU student Arthur Turner, junior physical science major from Providence, Utah, as he and fellow BHSU students and faculty install and use equipment underground at Sanford Lab for physics and biology research. The article provides an easy-to-read overview of research and activity at the BHSU Underground Campus, including how detectors housed at the Underground Campus contribute to the search for dark matter.

Lauren Biron, deputy editor of Symmetry Magazine, said the publication receives around 2 million page views annually.

The BHSU Underground Campus, located at the Sanford Lab in Lead, opened in 2015 and is in use by students and faculty. The Underground Campus provides a unique research environment for students and offers educational opportunities for students in a variety of disciplines from music, to science, to education.
