Society of Physics Students


The Society of Physics Students 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.

The SCU chapter participates in service projects and physics competitions. For fun, students plan social events and field trips. Field trips may include visits to NASA, SLAC, Lick Observatory, lectures at Stanford and camping.
