About Us

The Society of Physics Students is a professional physics association explicitly designed for students. Membership, through collegiate chapters, is open to anyone interested in physics. Within the SPS, Sigma Pi Sigma, a nationally recognized scholastic honor society, elects members on the basis of outstanding academic achievement. This two-in-one Society operates within the American Institute of Physics (AIP). The SPS is essentially a self-governing society created to serve the interests of physics undergraduate and graduate students.

SPS CSUSB

How we got started

It was formed in April 1968, from the union of the AIP Student Sections and Sigma Pi Sigma. The Student Sections had been established by AIP. Sigma Pi Sigma originated as a local honor society at Davidson College, North Carolina, in 1921. At present there are over 600 active chapters of SPS on campuses across the country. Approximately 6,000 students take part in the chapter activities, making SPS the fourth largest physics society in the country. Over 400 chapters include the honor society as part of their activities and have about 2,500 active members. Total membership in Sigma Pi Sigma, including alumni, exceeds 58,000.
