Physics Student Organizations
Physics Graduate Student Association (PGSA)
The Drexel Physics Graduate Student Association (PGSA) is a group of Physics Graduate Students at Drexel University. However, we are more than just a random gathering of students. We are a group of students seeking to learn about a variety of areas of physics, including those areas that would normally lie outside our own specialties. Moreover, we are about more than just physics, we discuss topics as varied as getting a job after graduation to how to write grants to just about anything.
Sigma Pi Sigma: Physics Honor Society
Drexel University is proud to have its own Sigma Pi Sigma chapter. Founded in 1921, Sigma Pi Sigma exists to honor outstanding scholarship in physics; to encourage interest in physics among students at all levels; to promote an attitude of service of its members towards their fellow students, colleagues and the public; and to provide a fellowship of persons who have excelled in physics.
Society of Physics Students
Welcome to the Drexel University Chapter of the Society of Physics Students (SPS)! We are a chapter of SPS National, an organization associated with the American Institute of Physics (AIP). The Drexel SPS chapter was revived in 2006 and has been going strong ever since!
SPS is a professional organization run by and designed for college students. Anyone interested in physics can become a member of SPS. Besides physics majors, our members include students from engineering, mathematics, chemistry, computer science, biology and other fields.
Women in Physics Society
Welcome to Drexel University's Women in Physics Society! We’re a group of fun-loving women who are passionate about physics, life and the various issues faced by women in all fields of science. Our mission is to increase the retention rate of women in the Department of Physics (both majors and minors) by organizing events that provide support, mentoring, education and community involvement. We strive to create a supportive community that both encourages and motivates women throughout their college experience in the Department of Physics.
