Abstract: The Large Hadron Collider is operating at 7 TeV center of mass energy for the past two years, delivering good quality data. The CMS experiment has established the Standard Model at this energy and has embarked on new physics searches. Early results from the searches for higgs bosons, supersymmetry and other exotic new physics will be presented. The emphasis will be on the contributions from the University of Wisconsin team.
