Welcome to SPS!
We are the Society of Physics Students at North Carolina State University. We strive to encourage and assist aspiring scientists in the successful completion of a degree in physics..and beyond! The Society of Physics Students is a place for undergraduates in physics or with an interest in physics to come together as one organization. We hold social and academic events for our members as well as arrange fundraisers and community service events in the Raleigh area.
Some of us are double majors, some of us used to be engineers, some used to be or still are in the armed forces, some of us love music and the arts, some of us want to go to graduate school, some of us want a job after college, some of us want to start their own company...but we all love physics and like to help each other out in our study of this rather challenging subject!
We like to give back to the community by participating and organizing outreach events with children as well as adults. One of our goals is to make physics accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds.
We also make sure to have lots of fun together by hosting picnics, camping trips, fundraising activities, game nights, movie nights..and much more!
Find out more about who we are, what we do and how to join us by clicking the links on the left.
Anyone that has an active interest in physics is welcome to join our meetings or events! If you are interested in joining SPS feel free to shoot any of our officers an email (contact information can be found on the "Officers" page to the left), or show up to our next SPS meeting. The time and location can be found on our Calendar on this website.
We hope to see you there!
Special thanks to our advisor, Dr. Dean Lee!
