What colleges on the East Coast have a decent physics program?

  1. Aug 20, 2011 #1

    I live on the East Coast (USA), and I'm looking into transferring from the college I'm at because it does not have a decent physics program/department.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for unis/colleges that have really good ones? (I'm not talking MIT, Harvard, etc. I know I probably wouldn't be accepted, so please don't mention those).
    I have tried googling this, but my searches haven't been fruitful.

    At this point, I'm looking for something that has either a really good particle, nuclear, or astrophysics department.
    Thank you for any help that you can give me. I really appreciate it. :)

    A few off the top of my head: Stony Brook, UPenn, Maryland. Check web sites for details about what research they do specifically.
