Welcome to the Society of Physics Students at UCR!

The Society of Physics Students was established at the University of California: Riverside on November 7, 2007. SPS provides graduates and undergraduates from all disciplines the opportunity to expand their knowledge of physics and astronomy and to meet other students, professors, and researchers in the field. We also aim to connect students through various social and academic activities which encourage or require collaboration and communication.

SPS Mentorship Program

SPS is launching the first ever physics mentorship program! This program is designed to help first year physics students thrive and build personal connections with upper classmen. This program encourages personal and academic growth amoung first year students. We are currently in the process of pairing up mentors with mentees, but there is still time for you to join! Go on and head over to the Mentor tab and check out the mentors! Once you have your top three choices, send an email to either Adam or Ren.We're excited to hear from you, and help you find your path to success!

General Meetings: Thursdays at 7pm

SPS hosts monthly general meetings on Thursdays from 7pm to 8pm in the Reading Room (PHYS 3035). We encourage all students (regardless of major) interested in physics to attend. We do all sorts of exciting things - from making fire dances to transmitting data through light, and even building particle detectors! Every quarter, we may have to change our meeting time to best fit our officer's and members' schedules - so be sure to keep in touch with us through Facebook, email and in person.
You are also more than welcome to drop by our club room on the first floor in PHYS 1118 or meet and greet us in the second floor at PHYS 2054e!
