Feynman is happy that you like Physics. So are we!

Have a look around the page, come to our meetings, and don't forget to ask questions; it's only natural (get it, Physics...natural)

Portal Information


The Mizzou Society of Physics Students is a local chapter of the Society of Physics Students. We are a club for students who are interested in physics. All majors are welcome.

SPS National Mission Statment:
"The SPS exists to help students transform themselves into contributing members of the professional community. Course work develops only one range of skills. Other skills needed to flourish professionally include effective communication and personal interactions, leadership experience, establishing a personal network of contacts, presenting scholarly work in professional meetings and journals, and outreach services to the campus and local communities."

Membership Criteria / Selection Process

Please describe who is eligible for membership and list any criteria used in the selection process. If open to all, please indicate so. (Keep in mind the non-discrimination clause from the organization's constitution.)

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 the organization may be known for or what members of your organization can expect to gain through becoming a member.

The Society of Physics Students organizes events, activities and meetings to raise awareness and interest in the discipline of Physics. We have two central purposes: help the wider public to realize the importance physics plays in our lives, and foster a rich scientific community for Mizzou students with physics at its center.

Meeting Information

Please include the days/dates your organization meets, the location(s), and time(s). This information helps interested students connect with the organization.

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.
