Welcome to SPS!

We are a student-led organization here at the University of Texas at Austin, open to anyone with a love of physics. With year-round guest lectures, information sessions, socials, and competitions, we aim to foster collaboration and communication within the department and beyond.

We are responsible for several outreach events throughout the year, including Prospective Students Day, Welcome Week at the beginning of the Fall semester, activities at the STEM Girl Day, and more!

Feel free to pop in to any of our meetings, every Monday 5:30-6:30 in WEL 4.132B – Old Library. No dues are required for membership, and attending a meeting will grant you access to the Discord server!

We’re always open to new ideas. If you have any changes you’d like to see in the department, activities you might be interested in, or just want to chat about physics, bring them up in a meeting or message us at spsofficers@gmail.com.

If you want to stay updated on current events in SPS, join the newsletter and follow us on Instagram at @texas_sps.

We hope to see you soon!
