SPS Club


The Society of Physics Students (SPS) is a professional association explicitly designed for students. Membership in this club is open to anyone interested in physics. Besides physics majors, our members include majors in chemistry, computer science, engineering, geology, mathematics, medicine, and other fields.

The SPS club at UMW exists to help students transform themselves into contributing members of the professional community. Course work in the major develops only one range obuttonsf skills,however, an active SPS member acquires other skills such as effective communication and personal interactions, leadership experience, establishing a personal network of contacts, presenting scholarly work at professional meetings and outreach services to the campus and local communities that are needed to flourish professionally.


Members of the SPS at UMW meet once in every two weeks (every alternate Wednesday at 5:00 p.m.). At these meetings, the club officers discuss about the upcoming events (research talks, fundraising, telescope nights and so on) held by the club or the Physics Department, design T-shirts/buttons as well as this club provides students an opportunity to have effective and fun conversations with their professors and fellow-classmates.
