Get Involved

We currently have two very active societies going on in our department: SPS and the Astronomical Society.

Collage of SPS student activities

SPS (Society of Physics Students)

The Society of Physics Students (SPS) is a professional association explicitly designed for students. Membership, through collegiate chapters, is open to anyone interested in physics. The only requirement for membership is that you be interested in physics. Besides physics majors, our members include majors in chemistry, computer science, engineering, geology, mathematics, medicine, and other fields.

SPS & Sigma Pi Sigma
Within SPS is housed Sigma Pi Sigma, the national physics honor society, which elects members on the basis of outstanding academic achievement.  This unique two-in-one society operates within the American Institute of Physics, an umbrella organization for ten other professional science societies.
