Sigma Pi Sigma - The Physics Honor Society

The St. Lawrence chapter of Sigma Pi Sigma (ΣΠΣ), founded in June 1929, was the ninth chapter formed in the country and has inducted over 300 members over the years. Dr. Catherine Jahncke is their advisor, having revived the group in 1995 after 2 decades of dormancy.

Membership in the Sigma Pi Sigma Honor Society is by invitation to students who must qualify according to the following academic criteria:

  1. Must have completed 3 semesters of college and 3 physics courses
  2. Have a physics cumulative average of 3.0
  3. Rank in the top third of their class.

St. Lawrence also sponsors a Society of Physics Students group which holds several physics-related gatherings each year. The Society of Physics Students is open to any student interested in physics.
