Society of Physics StudentsBenefits to joining SPS are:

1. Thousands of dollars in Scholarships! (YAY MONEY!)

2. Access to internships and jobs through the national SPS program.

3. Looks great on a resume.


You do not have to be a physics or engineering major to join. The only requirement is an interest in physics. We will be conducting our officer election at this first meeting so if you’re interested in shaping our chapter and doing something fun your more than welcome! The meeting will take place at 2pm in room 2106, second floor, at the Highland Campus
