Who We Are

Who We Are

The Yale Society of Physics Students is a nationally registered chapter of the Society of Physics Students. We host weekly study sessions (with pizza), biweekly dinners with professors in the physics department, fun study breaks, movie nights, and other events. We also hold two prestigious senior lecture series every year, first held in 2018: the Howard L. Schultz Senior Prize Lecture in the spring, and the Beatrice Tinsley Senior Prize Lecture every fall. Anybody is free to join the Yale SPS. Check out the "Join!" tab for more information.
