Active involvement in SPS can help you transform into a contributing member of the professional physics community. Course work develops only one range of skills. Other skills needed to flourish professionally include effective communication and personal interactions, leadership experience, establishing a personal network of contacts, presenting scholarly work in professional meetings and journals, and outreach services to the campus and local communities.
Locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally, the SPS offers opportunities for these important enrichments to your undergraduate experience. Whether it's through our weekly meetings where you can connect with professors and researchers in our department, social events where you can connect with your fellow physics majors and SPS members, or service events where you can share your love of physics with the community, SPS provides unprecedented opportunity to advance yourself as a student, researcher, and member of the larger Maryland Physics community.
