The Society of Physics Students, SPS, is an organization of physics majors that serves as a community to connect undergraduates in the Physics & Astronomy Department. We help the department with outreach events such as Math Day and Behlen Observatory public nights and have social events like movie and pizza nights. Most of the time you'll find us doing our homework or having random, invigorating physics discussions in the SPS room (JH 213). Some of us also eat lunch there (there's a fridge, microwave, and futon - the perfect college storm). Feel free to stop by and hang out!

All this will not be finished in the first one hundred days... nor will it be finished in the first one thousand days... nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin. John F. Kennedy
