Welcome to SPS!

The UCSB Society of Physics Students is an organization of UCSB students united by a common interest in physics. Our SPS encourages students of any physics background to network with fellow students, interact with faculty, explore diverse areas of cutting edge physics research, and consider the broad range of careers a training in physics makes available.
Along with weekly general meetings, we have seperate meetings for our Journal Club, Competitions, and Mentorship Program.
