Society of Physics Students

About Us

Fig 1. The Illustrious SPS Logo

Society of Physics Students (SPS) is a student organization whose members share a common interest (and/or common hatred) in physics. We have a wide range of members from many majors and colleges across the UIUC campus. Our mission is to expand our knowledge, meet other people who love physics, and give back to the community through science education and charity. 

Throughout the year our events include social events, academic/professional development workshops, Engineering Open House, a day trip to IKEA (and maybe a national lab if time permits), pizza meetings with professors (pizza included), charity book sales, a mini-hackathon, cultural trips, science journal club meetings, outreach volunteering, and more!

Join Us Weekly on Tuesdays, 8 – 9 PM In Loomis 222!*
