Society of Physics Students chapter honored as outstandingFebruary 26, 2009
For the eight consecutive year, The American Institute of Physics' Society of Physics Students (SPS) has named Rowan University's group an Outstanding SPS Chapter for 2007-2008, a title given to only 55 of the approximately 1,000 chapters.
The national SPS Council selects groups for this honor after reviewing chapters' participation in SPS events, professional engagements, outreach to K-12 students, research and other factors.
The SPS website praised Rowan for having an extremely active chapter. "One of the most impressive things was that students participated in or presented at approximately 39 professional meetings. [They also conducted] frequent outreach at the high school and elementary levels throughout the state, and completed over 120 hours of tutoring in physics, mathematics, and related subjects," according to the organization.
The Rowan SPS chapter is now in its 10th year and boasts about 30 active members.
