Department of Chemistry & Physics
The Physics Division sponsors the Physics Club, a chapter of the Society of Physics Students (SPS) which is affiliated with the American Institute of Physics. The SWOSU chapter has been nationally recognized many times as an Outstanding SPS Chapter for its accomplishments and level of activity. This organization has also received many grants for research projects and for the promotion of physics. Students in any of the physics programs should become involved in these activities as early as possible in order to develop professionally and socially. Both local and national memberships are strongly encouraged.
SWOSU also hosts a local chapter of Sigma Pi Sigma, the national physics honor society. Invitations for membership into this society are offered each year to qualified students who meet the requirements set down by the national organization.
