The Sciety of Physics Students was formed in 1968 with a constitution combinedits two "parent" organizations, the AIP Student Sections and the Sigma Pi Sigma honor Society. SPS now has over 700 chaters on Campuses across the country. About 5,000 students take part in chapter activities each year, making SPS the fourth largest physics society in the countr.The associated honor society, Sigma Pi Sigma, now exists in about 450 of those chapters with over 75,000 inductees throughout its history.
Founded at 2000, the Society of Physics Students has long been an essential vehicle to enrich both the academic and social lives of undergraduate physics majors at Syracuse University. Not only do we strive to make undergrads feel comfortable interacting with physics students and faculty at SU, but we also provide them opportunities for doing research outside of SU, meeting guest speakers, and getting engaged in science outreach and community service like Mayfest ,PHY 211/212 review session , and the GSSSF Science Fair.
