ABOUT US

The purpose of RU SPS is to be a foundation for the community of RU physics majors and a promoter of the general awareness and understanding of physics. RU SPS will provide the academic and social resources such that undergraduates can get the most out of their education, as well as benefit from the companionship of their peers and will be the focal point where majors will get to know the students they will be studying with for the rest of their undergraduate career.
