Student Activities and Resources

Society of Physics Students

Who We Are: The Miami University chapter of the Society of Physics Students is an organization open to all undergraduate and graduate students interested in physics.

When and Where: SPS meets once a week on Wednesdays at 6pm in 222 Kreger Hall, with special activities monthly. There is a monthly movie night (complete with pizza), community outreach, and physics demonstrations at various events. We also organize and host fall and spring picnics for the students, faculty, and guests of the Physics Department. Contact the president for more information.

Women In Physics

Who We Are:  The Women in Physics of Miami University is a club who purposefully supports the recruitment, retention, and career development of all physics students, especially women and gender-minorities. We collaborate with other STEM related organizations on campus, and participate in programs organized by the American Physical Society. Women in Physics is funded by ASG (Associated Student Government) and APS (American Physical Society) Women in Physics Group Grant.

When and Where: Women in Physics meets monthly for events. Any student regularly enrolled in Miami University may become a member of the Women in Physics club. To recieve more information about meets, please contact the president.

Astronomy Club

Who We Are: A group of students who are enthusiastic about space! We do not have any formal background in astronomy but are passionate about what our universe has to offer. Dr. Christopher Beer and Dr. Stephen Alexander are our faculty mentors/co-advisors and are focused and committed to aiding student involvement in the organization while enhancing our knowledge of the universe as we know it.

When and Where: The Astronomy Club meetings are in Kreger Hall during the fall and spring semesters. Meetings are canceled if the sky is cloudy, during exams, holiday breaks, and J-term. Everyone is welcome! For more information, email or the club president.

Student Representatives

These students were elected by department majors and attend most weekly faculty meetings to address the issues and concerns of students in the Department of Physics.

Tutors in Physics

A drop-in help center is available in-person Monday through Friday during the semester located in 303 Kreger Hall. Staffed by physics graduate students, the hours vary each day and new schedules are posted each semester.

Tutoring is available through the Society of Physics Students and by physics graduate students. Contact the SPS President with your request. All requests will be presented at the SPS weekly meeting, and an SPS student with availability will contact you. Also ask your professor or one of the physics mentors for information about supplemental instruction sessions. The list of courses supported by SI as well as weekly sessions are available here.
