Society of Physics Students Names USA SPS Outstanding Chapter of the Year
The University of South Alabama's chapter of the Society of Physics Students was recently selected as an Outstanding SPS chapter for the 2003-2004 academic year.
Less than 10 percent of the SPS chapters nationwide are given the honor. Selection is based on the depth and breadth of SPS activities conducted by the chapter in such areas as physics research, public science outreach, physics tutoring programs, hosting and representation at physics meetings, and providing social interaction for chapter members.
SPS is an organization of the American Institute of Physics.
