Society of Physics Students— SPS is a national organization that helps Physics students transform themselves into contributing members of the professional Physics community.

WiSM (Women in Science and Mathematics) — This group is dedicated to recruiting and retaining women students in sciences and mathematics, and to mentor and provide stewardship to women sciences and mathematics majors for advanced degrees and career tracks.

M3S — The Minority Mentoring in Math and Sciences (M3S) Program was initiated in 2006 by the College of Sciences with the objective of identifying minority math and science students and matching them with experienced and interested faculty mentors.

Student Advisory Board — The College of Sciences has a Student Advisory Board. This board consists of students from each of the subject areas of the college. The Department of Physics is fortunate to have excellent students as representatives on this important board. Students who would like leadership roles are encouraged to contact the department chair about the possibility for service on this board.

Astronomy Club - The Amateur Astronomer's Association of EIU exists to educate its members and others in the science and art of astronomy.

The wonders of the sky have fascinated generations of scientists and non-scientists alike. Come and look up with us!
