Join the Physics Club!
It is easy to become a member.  Just send us your name, year, mail box #, and declared major to this email address.  You don't have to be a physics major to join!


    The Physics Club, formed in 1962, is designed particularly for students interested in physics and related sciences. A division of the Society of Physics Students (SPS), the purpose of the club is to encourage a broader knowledge of physics and an understanding of the field of physics. Meetings are held once a month and include speakers, movies and tours of industrial research centers. 


    As many of you know, our annual fundraiser is the Rent-a-Student event, where Physics Club members spend 3-4 hours raking leaves, cleaning, or helping out in other ways in exchange for a donation to the Physics Club.  Students who participate in the fundraiser receive either a discount on the annual Physics Club T-shirt, or free admission into our All-Nighter in January.  (** Insert interesting comment about this years rent-a-student **)


Dr. Wagner has recently been named Councilor for Zone 7, the four-state section of SPS which includes Grove City.
