Build momentum for a fulfilling future

If you want to amplify your undergraduate experience and take your academics to the next level, we encourage you to get involved in a club, an organization for physics students or a research initiative. It’s a great way to meet fellow students with similar interests while developing highly sought after skills desired by potential employers, such as leadership, communication, problem solving, teamwork, public speaking and more.

  • Sundial – Join a diverse community of undergraduates, graduates, post-docs and faculty who share your interest in the physical sciences academically and professionally.
  • The Society of Physics Students (SPS) – Become a member of a professional physics association that’s explicitly designed for students, like you, who are interested in physics.
  • Undergraduate Research Opportunities – Take part in a research initiative in experimental or theoretical physics to help solve some of society’s most pressing issues.

Each of our student involvement activities and clubs are designed to help you excel academically while in school and beyond. Whether you want to join the workforce or pursue a graduate degree after graduation, these are the type of activities that will help you reach your fullest potential, both personally and professionally.
