Our club is open to all. We have no membership criteria. We welcome everyone who has an interest in physics, whether as a hobby or a profession.

Here's What We Do

This is less formal than your purpose statement. Take this opportunity to discuss any activities you may be known for or what members of your organization can expect to gain through their membership within your organization.

The Society of Physics Students organizes events, activities and meetings to raise awareness and interest in the discipline of Physics. Our purpose is to make the wider public realize the importance it plays in our lives and help succeed in their physics studies.

Meeting Information

Please include the days/dates your organization meets, the location, and time. This information helps students interested in joining your organization connect with you.

SPS generally holds meetings every 2 weeks. Students are informed of meetings by emails and flyers around the Physics department (if you're not on the mailing list, be on the lookout for one or send us an email so we can add you).
Meetings are usually in the Physics Lounge (Room 236, Physics Bldg) and meeting times/dates are present in the notifications sent out.
