SPC Wins Society of Physics Students Outstanding Chapter Award!

The Saint Peter's College chapter of the Society of Physics Students (SPS), with the support of Jose Lopez, Ph.D., and Wei-Dong Zhu, Ph.D., assistant professors of physics, received the national SPS Outstanding Chapter Award recognition in the Zone 3 area, which is represented by many top universities such as Princeton University and the University of Pennsylvania.

The Society of Physics Students is a professional association explicitly designed for students. Membership, through collegiate chapters, is open to anyone interested in physics.

SPS Outstanding Chapters are determined after a careful review of the information, photos and supporting material presented in the annual Chapter Reports. The reviewers include the Zone Councilor, the Associate Zone Councilor, and often, a third reviewer from outside the zone, as well as the SPS office staff.

The criteria for deciding the Outstanding Chapters in each zone include:
  • The chapter's involvement in local, zone and national SPS meetings and other professional meetings
  • Participation in SPS programs
  • Outreach efforts to the grades K-12 or the general public
  • Participation in community service
  • Contributions to student recruitment and retention
  • Participation in social events
  • Interactions with the department's alumni
Congratulations to all!
