Rowan's chapter of Society of Physics Students honoredFebruary 02, 2007
For the seventh year in a row, The American Institute of Physics' Society of Physics Students (SPS) has named Rowan University's group an Outstanding SPS Chapter, an honor given to approximately one chapter per state.
An American Institute of Physics nationwide panel of student members and regional advisors determines the winners based on the depth and breadth of chapter activities in such areas as research, public science outreach and tutoring, according to the organization.
Members of Rowan's chapter have presented their research at several national meetings, published their research and completed a number of outreach initiatives aimed at high schools. Additionally, Rowan hosted a regional SPS Meeting.
Dr. Samuel Lofland, Physics & Astronomy professor and SPS chapter advisor, said, "The success of our chapter is the result of dedicated students who enjoy learning physics and enjoy helping others learn about physics."
Rowan's nine-year-old SPS chapter currently has about 30 active members.
